Earlier values of the EU Point Index
Until now, the KB EU Point Index has always been higher than 100, which means that activity in the subsidy market is continuously growing. More and more calls are being launched, and also the volume of subsidies made available to applicants is greater every month. The high value of the EU Point Index in April 2009 was attributable to the launch of the Development and Innovation-Project schemes under Operational Programme Enterprise and Innovation, which caused a significant growth in consultations for KB clients. Moreover, the Ministry of the Environment approved almost 1,000 applications for subsidies to mud removal and revitalisation of fish ponds, reservoirs and small streams, and also to scrap yards and reclamation of disposal sites.
KB EU Point provides KB's clients with assistance in the implementation of subsidised projects. Relationship managers will search, free of charge, for subsidy schemes appropriate for each specific project and the bank's EU Point regional specialists will provide detailed consultations. Specialised companies with proven experience and expertise then prepare applications for subsidies and take care of complete project administration. The selection of a particular company is left up to the client at all times. The bankers also recommend the optimum project financing, compliant with the subsidy conditions. More information can be obtained from a relationship manager or at www.eupoint.cz.
