Financial incentives

A string of financial incentives has been set up to facilitate the relocation of new companies and business growth in Wallonia.

This financial aid makes it possible to:

  • Contribute to company relocation costs (up to 20 %);
  • Reduce the burden of taxes and social contributions;
  • Encourage the recruitment and training of staff;
  • Finance consultancy;
  • Support export projects;
  • Foster the use of renewable energies or environmental initiatives.

This list would not be complete without referring to the various very useful financial measures available within the framework of European programmes.

Venture capital

Access to venture capital is facilitated by the widescale availability of private or public funds, ready to participate in the creation or extension of dynamic activities. In Wallonia, more than elsewhere, companies are reputed for their high return on investment in the mid term.
