Within the Special Economic Zone, companies will benefit from simplified administrative and bureaucratic procedures through Campania regional law and national measures. 

“Key benefits of the Special Economic Zone in the Campania Region for the companies include streamlined customs processes, fiscal breaks and financial advantages in addition to simplified administrative procedures. The goal is to promote the growth of companies already operating in the Special Economic Zone as well as attracting new ones”, says Susanne Wendler, UniCredit Bank Austria Management Board member responsible for Unternehmerbank. “As part of UniCredit, a successful pan-European Commercial Bank, we are proud to be able to present this investment and growth opportunity to our Austrian clients”, she adds.

Tax credit on investments up to 50 million Euros
The Special Economic Zone aims at fostering the region’s economic development as an industrial and logistics hub. Incentives aim at both, supporting companies helping modernize existing production sites as well as developing new industrial settlements leading to the creation of innovative products. Amongst others, incentives for foreign direct investments include tax credit on investments up to 50 million Euros or access to credit, while investment terms require a seven-year minimum commitment.
