OPPIK EXPANZE Programme – support in the form of preferential investments credits
The long-awaited and well-known call for the EU-funded programme – EXPANZE – should be announced during April.. OPPIK Expanze is a support programme in the form of returnable financial tools – it means in the form of credits and guarantees, which should replace the current system of direct subsidy after the year 2020.
During the preparation of this article, the final conditions of the call have not been published yet. The condition listed below comes from the preliminary information available. The actual information will be at your disposal at the email address below.
In the future, the Expanze programme will include preferential credits and guarantees. In the first call, only credits should be provided. There will be special interest-free investment credits for the acquisition of long-term tangible assets and intangible assets. They will be provided to the small sized and medium sized entrepreneurs by the Czech-Moravian Guarantee and Development Bank (ČMZRB) up to the amount of 45% of the eligible expenses, namely in the range of 2 – 45 million crowns.
The credits allow for a deferment of the principal payment up to 3.5 years and their maturity should be up to seven years. The condition is that the financing of the project will be accompanied by a commercial loan from a cooperating bank or leasing company.
The total allocation is 8.8 billion Crowns. In the first call, a quarter of this volume is planned to be released. During the current programme period, the ČMZRB expects to support up to 900 projects.
