Entrepreneur invest with relief!

Tax exemption of up to 70% of investment costs

The Polish Investment Zone is an instrument of support, which enables entrepreneurs, performing new investments in the territory of the whole of Poland, to obtain an exemption from income tax (CIT or PIT) for the period of 10-15 years, in the amount of even up to 70% of the value of the planned investment. The new investment can be implemented both on public and private areas.

To benefit from this form of support, an entrepreneur must receive a decision on the support to be issued upon request of the entrepreneur, by the Suwałki Special Economic Zone S.A. if a new investment is performed on the area managed by the Suwałki Special Economic Zone S.A.

An entrepreneur investing here has the possibility to take advantage of the highest state aid in the country.
