Our activities also include a lubricants distribution network, aviation fuel supply and fleet solutions. Shell’s upstream activities include the processing and distribution of petroleum products.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Austria is 25%. Profits in 2021 were offset by carrying forward losses that arose from an impairment of a financial asset in 2012. Austrian tax law allows companies to offset 75% of annual tax profits by carrying forward losses and paying tax on the remaining 25%, in compliance with the minimum corporate income tax regime. The tax accrued and paid in 2021 relates to profits arising in 2020 and 2021 as corporate income tax in Austria is partly paid in arrears.

Corporate income tax
This is a direct tax imposed on companies’ profits. It is sometimes levied at a national level but can also be levied on a state or local basis.
