Country Financial Analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Poland is 19%.

Lower revenues from third parties were mainly due to a decrease in volumes of fuel sold and a reduced retail fuel price because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, profits increased because of lower operational costs and a higher average profit margin compared with 2019.

Tax paid includes corporate income tax paid on profits from 2019, as well as a prepayment of income tax for taxable profits arising in 2020. The SBO centre operates in a special economic zone which provides a partial tax exemption from corporate income taxes.

A branch is an office or business presence in a location other than where the corporate entity is established.
