Forms of Aid
The industrial promotion program is determined by Decree n° 2054/92, in force since 1 February 1992. It is the Under-Secretary for Investment's office, a division of the Secretariat for Commerce and Investment, which is in charge of deciding which sectors and regions to promote and the advantages foreign investors may lay claim to. The mechanism of aid to investment has been revised.
In principle, aid no longer takes the form of tax exemptions or reductions, but tax credits, covering the theoretical fiscal cost of the project, which is calculated according to the level of development of the area of activity being encouraged.
Other forms of aid to investment have been developed: tax exemptions, special import regimes, accelerated depreciation for machines, equipment and infrastructure work.
