Proposed Amendment to the Act on Investment Incentives

In the future, investment incentives should focus on support of projects with higher added value (R&D centers, BSS etc.). New investment incentives legislation shall be effective from 2019, thus it does not apply to any applications submitted to CzechInvest before the new law comes into effect. It is expected that R&D centers and BSS will be provided with cash grant financial support for each job created and for training anywhere in the Czech Republic. Cash grant on capital investment for strategic investment in R&D and high-tech repair centers shall be increased to 20% of eligible costs.

The requirement of minimal number of new jobs created should be set by government regulation, allowing for flexibility and ability to respond to the situation on labor market. In case of low unemployment rate the condition of jobs created would be lower or none and vice versa (mainly in manufacturing industry). Also, long-term EU residents and employees with part-time contracts will be counted towards new jobs.

For traditional manufacturing projects, higher added value condition should be introduced, e.g. a minimal wage requirement, specified share of R&D workers and university employees. In case of SME, minimum number of newly created jobs and minimum investment in not supported regions shall be reduced to half.
