Frequently Asks Questions

Question not answered?

  • Which incentives deals are monitored?

    All types of fiscal incentives offered to companies to establish new operations or to expand an existing operation are included. To be included, the investment project must create new employment/retain existing and involve a certain amount of capital investment. The main types of incentives recorded are: Tax Rebate, Grant or Subsidy, Loan or Credit, and Non-Financial incentives, such as infrastructure development. Incentive packages offered but not accepted by a company and those which were subjected to clawbacks are included.
