Summary/Abstract: The purpose of the paper was to present the conflict between business practice in Poland and the common court interpretation of the Polish Bankruptcy Act. Court interpretation states that if a company has got two unpaid in time invoices it should file for bankruptcy (however, under certain circumstances the judge can dismiss the case). Most practitioners do not follow this interpretation and wait much longer before they file for bankruptcy. Consequently, if a company finally goes bankrupt the managers are charged with negligence for waiting too long with starting bankruptcy proceedings.
