What are investment incentives and how it can help me?
In the Czech Republic, investment incentives are used to support businesses that develop the given region with their investments and thus help to cultivate its environment. Incentives are provided by the state, approved by the government in cooperation with ministries and processed by CzechInvest. They are provided to recipients primarily in the form of tax relief or, in certain cases, in the form of subsidies.

How can I find out if I’m eligible to an investment incentive?
Start with the area in which you do business. Investment incentives are intended for investors in the areas of technology centres, business support services centres, the manufacturing industry and manufacturers of special medical products.

According to what criteria are investment-incentive applications assessed?
All investment-incentive applications are assessed and approved by the government, which takes into account especially the benefits for the given region and the state. In practice, this means that all investment-incentive applicants must quantify their anticipated contributions to public budgets and their impact on the labour market in their applications. In addition to that, they must also describe the means by which they intend to incorporate research and development into their activities and to cooperate with research institutes and schools, and how they will utilise the potential of local suppliers and contribute to the development of the local infrastructure.
