Within the Programme, the aid is provided exclusively for the investment projects which completion in Poland is conditional
on receiving a financial grant from the State budget, which is connected with fulfilment of the so-called incentive effect.
The operator of the Programme and the authority granting state aid is the Minister of Economy. The Polish Information
& Foreign Investment Agency (PAIiIZ) is responsible for preparing and providing the Interministerial Committee for
Investments of Major Importance to the Polish Economy with the dossier of investment projects and for preparing all
documents required to carry out the entire procedure of providing financial support. Each project is subject to an individual
assessment by the Committee on the basis of detailed criteria laid down in the Programme.


TAX EXEMPTION WITHIN SPECIAL ECONOMIC ZONES (SEZ)
The Special Economic Zones are the separated parts of the country where the investors may be given tax exemption (CIT or
PIT). There are 14 Special Economic Zones in Poland, each of which is in charge of a number of the so-called subzones. The
total area recognized as SEZ in Poland may not exceed 25 thousand ha. At the moment, this area covers 19 thousand ha.
