European Advisory Services (EAST)

The European Advisory Services team advises multinational corporations and domestic entrepreneurs in obtaining state aid for developing a company. The European Advisory Services team deals both with obtaining financing from European Union funds, European Union initiatives such as JESSICA, as well as domestic programmes, i.e. from the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management (NFEP&WM) and the National Centre for Research and Development.

Since 2006, we have been successfully providing services to both Polish and international companies in obtaining grants and tax breaks, for instance for new investments, the creation of shared service centres, training, research and development, renewable energy sources, as well as environmental protection.

Since 2006, The European Advisory Services team has obtained a total of PLN 3.8 billion in state aid for its clients, from which almost PLN 1.5 billion was within the framework of measure 4.5 of the Innovative Economy Operational Programme, including over PLN 218 million for the creation of shared service centres and research and development centres.

The European Advisory Services team also supports companies in the negotiation of state aid packages for companies, income tax exemptions within the framework of Special Economic Zones (our clients have obtained over PLN 500 million in tax exemptions) as well as real estate tax.

The many spectacular successes of The European Advisory Services team also includes advisory services in obtaining financing within the framework of the JESSICA initiative, for the first municipal revitalisation project involving the construction of a shopping centre (not only in Poland, but in the European Union).

Our effectiveness has been recognised numerous times, including by FORBES (first place in the 2009 and 2010 rankings) and FUNDUSZE EUROPEJSKIE magazine.
