Two New Sessions for Submitting Applications on the State Aid Scheme for Salary Costs 25.02.2016 The Ministry of Public Finance estimates that there will be two new sessions, in March and July 2016, which will enable companies to submit financing requests based on the state aid scheme for salary costs (regulated by G.D. 332/2014). The opening day of the sessions as well as the related budget will be announced on the website at least 30 days before their opening. The total budget allocated for this state aid scheme for 2016 is RON 450 million. Should this budget not be entirely used in the first session in March 2016, a new session will be opened in July 2016. The state aid scheme for salary costs was launched in 2014 by the Ministry of Public Finance, with the main purpose to support regional development through investments that generate at least 10 new workplaces. The grant received from the Romanian state finances the gross salary and the related taxes for 2 consecutive years.
