About the global survey

Information current as of 1 December 2017

In most countries and industry sectors, an elaborate system of financial incentives is available to fuel R&D, innovation, capital expansion, environmental sustainability, employment, and training. These government incentives are available for both domestic investments and growth opportunities abroad. The multitude of opportunities becomes more complex when you consider that within each country, local and regional governments have the authority to fund incentives of their own. Moreover, the incentive regimes are constantly changing to align with the shifting political and social landscapes.

Some governments are making their incentives more generous to foster growth, whereas others focus on targeting their incentives to specific sectors to address narrow policy goals. The effectiveness of government incentives is always being evaluated—resulting in constant change, sun-setting laws, transition rules, complex enforcement policies, etc.

The content in this global survey is organised so that you can quickly hone in on the government incentives that are of greatest interest to you. This survey describes popular government incentives available in 41 countries to encourage investment in R&D, employment, training, energy sustainability, and regional development.
