Exclusive Power Breakfast on State Aid
November 05, 2015, HOTEL NOVOTEL , BUCHAREST

We have the pleasure to invite you to another exclusive power breakfast with focus on practical aspects regarding the New State Aid Schemes for 2014 - 2020 in Romania.

Especially now, when companies are in the middle of the budgeting process for the next year, it is a great opportunity to get an overview on this incentive and learn more about financing investments on non-reimbursable funds.
Your company can benefit from up to 50% cash reimbursement of its investment in assets or of the salary costs for 2 consecutive years, if it intends either to invest more than EUR 10 million in assets or to create more than 10 new working places. The total budget to be allocated for such projects is of EUR 1.2 billion (EUR 600 million for each of the two schemes) and the applications will be treated on a first-in-first-out basis.

Join this event to get an overview on this incentive and to discuss with experts about the implementation of successful investments in Romania, practical issues and solutions.
It is now, after one year since the Romanian Government has laid the cornerstone of the new state aid schemes for the period 2014-2020, the best opportunity for learning more about this financing tool.
Since 2009, State Aid proved to be an effective financing tool for investment projects, as emphasized by approximately 70 beneficiaries until now, which generated more than 20.000 new workplaces.
