Step 1 Preparation of Business Plan & First Payment

The business plan will be prepared together with a specialised business consultant. Alternatively, the Client may deliver an own professional and detailed business plan. GIS will “fine-tune” the business plan, in order to improve the chances of the application’s approval. After you agree with our suggestion, you will have to make a deposit payment.


Step 2 Negotiations with Authorities

If Stage 1 is completed satisfactorily, GIS starts negotiations with different involved government authorities in order to lobby for the Client’s business venture. Target of these negotiations are to outline the economic benefit to the Austrian economy. In certain cases, it is advantageous to arrange personal meetings with the authorities which can be done by GIS; personal appearance of the Client is not mandatory.
