Prime Minister: we cooperate with entrepreneurs and help them enter foreign markets

During the visit in Greater Poland Voivodeship, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visited Berotu in Glinna and Polska Dystrybucja Budowlana in Krzemieniewo. It was an opportunity to summarise the Government' s support for Polish entrepreneurs. The Government takes care of the interests of Polish companies not only during the COVID-19 pandemic. Apart from the funds from the Anti-Crisis Shield, entrepreneurs also benefit from a CIT reduction from 19 to 9%. From the beginning of next year, the so-called Estonian CIT will also become effective, which will be another facilitation for companies.

Dear entrepreneurs, we are with you and we support you in the expansion into foreign markets as we helped you during the most difficult months of the pandemic, when the Anti-Crisis Shield saved millions of jobs said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

Government aid in the COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Government provided support for entrepreneurs. As Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki emphasises, the main goal is to provide employees with stable employment and companies with growth opportunities.

Polish companies have already received over PLN 110 billion, which saved about 5 million jobs. Thanks to the prompt Government' s response, Poland is in a better position compared to other European countries. Currently, Poland is the second country with the lowest unemployment in the European Union.

The Estonian CIT - greater investment capacity of Polish companies

The Polish Government supports companies not only during the crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is evidenced by the CIT reduction from 19 to 9 % and the so-called Estonian CIT, which will become effective from January next year.

In addition to the Business Constitution and CIT tax at the lowest level in Europe, we also implement the so-called Estonian CIT. I think that all entrepreneurs will appreciate the fact that we were with them during this difficult time of the epidemic and we responded with reflexes added the Head of Government.

The Estonian CIT is a modern method of taxation, which promotes investments and minimises tax settlement paperwork. Thanks to this solution, companies will not pay the tax in monthly or quarterly advance payments, or settle their accounts annually. The tax will be due only upon the payment of the profit. Stronger investment capacity of Polish companies, increased productivity and innovation or saving time needed for tax settlements are only some of the benefits that will be provided to small and medium-sized enterprises by the so-called Estonian CIT.


Berotu is a Polish company producing furniture for the Swedish concern IKEA. It started its activity in 2015. Since then, it has been using the state-of-the-art technologies and machinery to achieve excellent quality and precision of deliveries at a competitive price.

Polska Dystrybucja Budowlana is a company specialising in the wholesale distribution of construction materials of well-known brands and in developing innovative IT solutions aimed at optimising the cost of delivery of construction materials.
