Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Poland is 19%. In 2021, the Ministry of Finance confirmed that Shell Polska Sp. z o.o. can apply unilateral advance pricing agreements for tax deductions on certain costs in line with the country's Cost Contribution Agreement. This allowed Shell to revise deductible costs for previous financial years and submit corrected corporate income tax returns in 2022, which generated tax refunds. Shell Business Operations Krakow is located in a special economic zone which provides a partial corporate income tax exemption.
