Determination of SCA for a cleaning company
The SCA number for a cleaning company is 81.21.Z – non-specialized cleaning of buildings and industrial facilities.
Cleaning company – with or without VAT?
Cleaning services are not subject to VAT exemption.
However, entrepreneurs who open a cleaning company have the possibility to use subjective exemption, which is conditioned by not exceeding the turnover limit of PLN 200,000 per year. It is important to keep an eye on this limit, because the moment it is exceeded, the obligation to register for VAT arises. Activities that resulted in exceeding the limit are already taxable.
Is a business account necessary for a cleaning company?
Setting up a business does not always involve having a company account. However, it is necessary when services are to be rendered to companies or when the value of a single transaction exceeds PLN 15,000. Because expenses paid in cash with a value exceeding PLN 15,000 cannot be tax deductible expenses. Currently, every bank offers a corporate account, but before making a decision, it is worth paying attention to the amount of fees associated with maintaining the account, etc.
What premises do you need for a cleaning company?
When opening a cleaning company, it is not necessary to have a separate room – your own apartment can be your headquarters, and you can store the necessary equipment there. It is also not necessary to have an office to present an offer to customers, as they usually prefer to meet on their premises.
The right equipment for a cleaning company
After you go through the formalities of setting up a cleaning company, you need to focus on the right equipment and materials. You will need detergents, mops, brushes, rags and possibly specialized cleaning, vacuuming or maintenance machines if you want to target large areas (supermarkets, halls, etc.) from the start.
