Sources of support for entrepreneurs

Poland is a beneficiary of considerable EU funds which have allowed it to establish a broad system of support for business. The numerous investment incentives and sources of state aid are available, also for investors operating within 'Special Economic Zones' (SEZs).

In 2014-2020 Poland received EUR 82.5 billion under the EU choesion policy

Those funds allow for 6 domestic and 16 regional operational programmes to be implemented. Morever, Poland will recieve funds under European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the European Maritime and Fusheries Fund, which will enable the country to implement programmes targeted at the agricultural sector and the fisheries sector.


The broad catalogue of support instruments offers numerous investment incentives to entrepreneurs. Support is available, inter alia, for:

  • investments into fixed assets and into the creation of new jobs,
  • research and development activities,
  • activities related to environmental protection (e.g. support for investments in renewable energy sources),
  • training,
  • acquisition of a new technology.



Poland has managed to develop a very attractive system of different types of incentives. There are possibilities to benefit from both tax exemptions and cash grants for new investments and job creation. These SEZs in Poland offer exemption from income tax, which is supplemented with real estate offered by local authorities. Cash grants are available from 'Program for the support of investments of considerable importance for the Polish economy for years 2011-2020' for investments in: automotive, aviation, biotechnology, food processing, R&D and modern services sector. A second source of cash grants are subsides co-financed with European funds for the years 2014-2020 - application rounds have started.
