Starting a small business in Poland (Warsaw)

So I'm a US citizen teaching English in Warsaw. One month ago I filed an application to start a business. I did this because some of my clients wanted invoices, usually for tax purposes.

But apparently setting up a business is forbidden under my current visa. I have a visa (through a language school I work for) and work permit valid until December. They won't let me set up the business because I don't have 'long term' residency in Poland. This is the type of residency you get by marrying a Pole or having Polish relatives, for example.

Have any other non-EU people living in Poland set up businesses? How did you go about doing it?

Many thanks!
