The report should be submitted in the country of the parent company, however, the capital group may designate another entity from the group to submit a CbC-R in the country of its residence.

Companies having their seat or management in Poland or foreign entities having a branch in Poland are obliged to submit a notification to the Head of the National Tax Administration confirming that the company:

  1. is a parent entity, a designated entity or other entity that provides information about a capital group – CbC-R or
