Power Breakfast on State Aid

Updates and practical aspects on the implementation of the New State Aid Schemes for 2014-2020 

The previous state aid schemes proved to be a success and a lot of companies benefited from non-reimbursable funds during the last 6 years. The Romanian Government has decided to continue its commitment to finance viable projects through state aid and has recently approved the new state aid schemes valid for the period 2014-2020. State aid remains a feasible financing tool for local and foreign investors in Romania.

Your company can now 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. It is now, when the Romanian Government has just laid the cornerstone of the new state aid schemes for the period 2014-2020, the best opportunity for learning more about this financing tool.

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.
