Łukasz Bryl


The aim of the article is to analyze the current state of IC reporting studies in Poland in the context of existing studies worldwide. Specifically, the paper attempts to answer the question what is the performance of IC disclosure in Poland and if the changes (or lack of changes) in IC reporting in Poland goes in line with world practices. Such analysis is of crucial importance in a sense that trends in IC reporting identified among Polish entities may be further developed in terms of adopted procedures, aims and methods. Final conclusions of the paper are: Polish IC reporting focuses mostly on largest publicly listed entities, most prevalent method is content analysis with different scales for disclosure index, the general level of disclosing is unsatisfactory, however increasing, there are sectors differences in reporting, most information can be found in CSR and Integrated reports, as a result most IC reporting refers to HC and RC. SC reporting is the most neglected component of IC.
