The usage of the equivalent terms in the Polish legal system may often be confusing because each of them has several different definitions for various purposes. Przedsiębiorca ('entrepreneur' or 'undertaking')—known as kupiec ('merchant') until 1964; jednostka gospodarcza ('economic unit') from 1964 to 1988; podmiot gospodarczy ('economic entity') from 1988 to 1997—is the closest equivalent of company understood as an entity. As of January 2021, there are at least thirteen different definitions of entrepreneur/undertaking, enshrined in the following acts: * the Civil Code, * the Law of the Entrepreneurs, * the Bankruptcy and Restructuring Law, * the Law of Industrial Property Rights, * the Geological and Mining Law * Act on the National Court Register, * Act on Protection of Competition and Consumers, * Act on Combatting Unfair Competition, * Act on Counteracting Unfair Market Practices, * Act on Informing about Prices of Goods and Services, * Act on Protection of Classified Information, * Commission Regulation (EU) on the application of Articles 107 and 108 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to de minimis aid, * Regulation (EU) No 952/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 October 2013 laying down the Union Customs Code. Przedsiębiorstwo ('enterprise') is defined in the Civil Code as an organized complex of material and non-material components designated to perform economic activity. Therefore, it is equivalent to company understood as a set of assets organized to do business. Działalność gospodarcza ('economic activity') is the closest equivalent of business. As of January 2021, there are at least six different definitions of economic activiy, enshrined in the following acts: * the Law of the Entrepreneurs, * the Tax Ordinance, * Act on Personal Income Tax, * Act on Goods and Services Tax (VAT), * Act on Social Security System, * Act on Procedures Concerning Public Aid (transcription of the definition developed in the EU case law).
