Investment aid of up to 20% for SMEs
The Walloon Region can grant a premium to companies of up to 20% of the amount invested for investment projects in Wallonia. The amount of aid varies according to several criteria, for example: the size of the company, whether it is located in a development zone, the creation of new jobs, the type of activity, etc.
Aid is granted for an initial investment, whatever the form (not limited to investment in a new activity).
Initial investment is defined as
- any investment in tangible and intangible assets relating to the setting up of an establishment, the extension of the capacity of an existing establishment, the diversification of the production of an establishment into products which it did not previously produce or a fundamental change in the overall production process of an existing establishment, or
- any acquisition of assets belonging to an establishment which has closed or would have closed without such acquisition and which is taken over by an investor unrelated to the seller, excluding the simple acquisition of shares in a company.
