One of the main issues to be considered when deciding on starting an investment project is to find and evaluate an appropriate investment site. This process may be incidental or intuitive; it can, however, be based on gathered experience, practical knowledge of location success factors, appropriate analysis of essential conditions (various for different industries) or on a combination of all those factors. In order to avoid unnecessary risk related to the process, PwC has developed a unique methodology of choosing an investment site. The methodology is practical and includes, among others, visiting chosen locations and negotiating with local authorities.
Growing pressure on controlling costs encourages more and more businesses to look for new, more economical locations for their manufacturing plants in the east, especially in the new EU Member States.
One of the factors that should not be forgotten in such considerations is the state aid provided to such companies. Your company may qualify for such aid as well. Applicants from such sectors as new technologies, strategic services and scientific and research centres who meet certain requirements are offered a range of investment incentives. Your company may gain financial aid amounting even to 50% of its value.
