Technology centres

Investment incentives for Technology centres can be used by all companies, regardless of their size. Even foreign firms with a Czech subsidiary are entitled to recieve the support. Employees training, new jobs creation, and low-cost lot transfers are some forms of the state support.  

Who is the scheme intended for?

Investment incentives can be obtained by companies of all sizes that already have or are looking to establish their own R&D facilities.  Support can be granted to projects involving the establishment or expansion of a technology centre, given that there is an assumption of using the outcomes in subsequent production. Foreign companies establishing a subsidiary in the Czech Republic can also benefit from these incentives.

Forms of investment incentives available

  • corporate income tax relief for up to10 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)
