The main investment incentives provided by the law are: 

  • Tax exemption
  • State funding
  • Subsidies for financial credit
  • Subsidies towards the costs of jobs created
  • Corporate risk financing

The new regulations and investment incentives are aimed at domestic and foreign investors wishing to invest in business activities in the country, explain the Ecovis experts. The implementation is expected to bring significant benefit to the Greek economy, especially given the great interest in investing in production facilities in Greece. It is predicted that private chartered auditors will oversee the qualifying projects in order to speed up the relevant procedures.
