Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Polish investment agency PAIIZ is going to invite investors who want to launch in Poland Business Process Offshoring (BPO) centres to tax-free special economic zones. The new law may be implemented as early as in March. The Ministry of Economy has already prepared the bill, which needs to be approved by the government and the PM.

The new law may help Poland lure as many as thirty investors this year. ‘We are talking to 15 possible investors interested in launching service centres. 15 other may start talks after the law goes into force. This means 30 projects and up to 15,000 jobs’, Sebastian Mikosz from PAIIZ said. Despite tax free operations for several years, one service centre could pay to the budget around PLN 90 m (EUR 22.1 m) until the year 2017, estimates say.

According to a report published by McKinsey company in 2003, the BPO market was worth EUR 15 billion. 500,000 jobs could be created in Poland in 5 years, the report read. The Czech Republic and Hungary subsidise this type of investment with grants.
