    Under the Programme, aid is provided exclusively for investment projects whose completion in Poland is conditional on receiving a financial grant from the State budget.

     

    The operator of the Programme and the authority granting state aid is the Minister of Economy. The Polish Information & Foreign Investment Agency (Polska Agencja Informacji i Inwestycji Zagranicznych S.A. - PAIiIZ) is responsible for preparing and providing the Interministerial Committee for Foreign Investment (hereinafter referred to as the Committee) with the dossier of investment projects and for preparing all documents required to carry out the entire procedure of providing financial support.

     

    Each project is subject to an individual assessment by the Committee on the basis of detailed criteria laid down in the Programme.

     

    Procedure for the award of support:

    1. The investor submits to PAIiIZ information on the planned project, using a standard form signed by persons authorized to represent the investor.
    2. Information is evaluated by PAIiIZ. PAIiIZ provides the Chairman of the Committee with information about the project and a draft offer of financial support, with a justification.
    3. The Committee takes up decision on recommended support for the project and submits recommendation to the Minister of Economy for the final decision on granting the support.
    4. PAIiIZ informs the investor of the Committee’s recommendation. The Investor takes a decision on accepting or rejecting the offer.
    5. After accepting the offer, the investor applies to the Minister of Economy for a letter of intent confirming that the investment may commence.
    6. The Minister of Economy sends to the investor a letter of intent confirming that the investment may commence
    7. Minister of Economy concludes with the investor an agreement on the award of a support.

    The support granting procedure can be extended in case of companies applying for two or more instruments of regional aid (government grants and CIT exemption and / or grants co-financed from EU funds).
