Paraná Competitive is one of the main programs for attraction of investments in Paraná. Through well structured and sustained by law benefits, the program supports both the new investor and the entrepreneur already established that will grow his business. Invest Paraná is the greatest ally of the investor in having access to media and information in order to use these incentives. The program was created in early 2011 to reinsert the Parana on the agenda of national international and local investments. Contemplating a series of measures through the dilation of periods for ICMS payment, investments to improve infrastructure, trade, reduction of bureaucracy and professional training, aims to make the state more attractive for new productive enterprises that generate employment, income, prosperity and sustainable development.

The benefits are defined in a technical way starting from a report made by Invest Paraná, which takes into account the state's priorities, such as: type of investment, number of jobs, economic and environmental impact and degree of innovation. After the technical evaluation of Invest Pr the process then proceeds to analysis made by the Department of Finance, where the granting or not of the benefit is determined, and for which period and need.

All tax issue related resolutions are the responsibility of the Paraná State Treasury Office.
