Tax incentives offered to foreign investors

Special tax treatments
Incentives for investors including tax relief are governed by the Investment Incentives Act. Tax exemptions for a period of five years are provided for new investments. (Minimum investment limit is CZK 100m with 60% or more invested in machinery). These limits are reduced for regions with higher unemployment rates. Besides investment incentives, a taxpayer may deduct from the tax base 100% of expenses (costs) incurred on the implementation of R&D projects. For more information on tax incentive programs you can consult CzechInvest.
