Free trade zones

In 2020, there are 14 special economic zones in Poland. Each SSE consists of several sub-zones which are located in different places, not necessarily next to each other.
The main benefit of investing in a special economic zone is the possibility to obtain a tax allowance consisting of a corporate income tax (CIT) exemption. Currently (2020), the CIT rate in Poland is 19%.
