Over the last five years LPP has contributed nearly four billion zlotys to the Polish budget by way of paid taxes and levies; According to estimates, the 2019 state budget revenues from this company will exceed one billion zlotys, giving a record result in its history.

The company from Gdańsk, listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange, in 2018 alone paid almost one billion zlotys to the state budget by virtue of taxes and levies. As per the statement of the Ministry of Finance, by paying CIT in the amount of over144 million zlotys LPP earned a place among 30 payers contributing the highest amount of income tax. In this respect, the company ranked among top three companies in the commercial sector. According to estimates, all the levies of LPP paid to the state budget for 2019 will exceed one billion zlotys.

The contribution to the Polish economy on such a scale is possible, among others, thanks to the combination of the company’s active operation on the domestic and foreign markets alike, yet paying taxes in Poland. LPP and its brands – Reserved, House, Cropp, Mohito and Sinsay, are already available on 39 markets. More than 1700 stores with a total area of over one million sq.m. operate in 25 countries in Europe and Asia, as well as in the Middle East.

In the second quarter of the previous year, for the first time in the history of the company, the proceeds from foreign sales exceeded the revenues from domestic sales, and this trend continued in the following two quarters.

Parallel to the successes in the international context, the company continues to strengthen its Polish roots. Its headquarters is to remain in our country, the collection design will continue to take place here, strategic decisions related to the development of the company will be made here and taxes will be paid here, too.
