Business support services centres

Shared services centres have been recently added to the investment incentives schemes. In the past, they were mainly supported through the EU structural funds, in particular the ICT programme.

Who is the scheme intended for?

Investment incentives can be obtained by companies, regardless of their size, operating in the field of shared service centres (accounting, HR, data centres, helpdesk, etc.), software-development centres, or high-tech repair centres. Foreign companies looking to establish a subsidiary in the Czech Republic can also benefit from these incentives.

Forms of investment incentives available

  • corporate income-tax relief for up to 10 years
  • subsidy for training and retraining of employees at a rate of 25% of the eligible training expenses
  • site support (transferring of public land at a favourable price)
  • job-creation cash grant of CZK 50 000 per employee (selected regions only)
