In 2018, Polish companies can benefit from over 11 billion PLN of non-refundable grants for development (operating costs) and investment (infrastructure costs) activities. They can also benefit from high limits of tax exemptions in the Economic Zone and from an incentive for R&D activities as well as from 30 billion EUR for projects co-financed directly by the European Commission.

These are significant and unprecedented sums of available funds - companies in Poland benefit from them in order to quickly increase their competitiveness and reduce business costs - companies failing to assess the available options may find themselves in a less favorable position on the market.

Selected support programs are presented briefly in the tables below - they include both the option to apply for co-financing in the framework of competitions for all industries as well as the ones focused only on selected sectors.

The Grants, Development Incentives and Innovation Team of Dentons supports its clients in assessing their options, identifying the costs of business activity for which grants and incentives can be obtained and, eventually, obtain and settle the co-funding.
