Business Incentives

Arkansas is Invested in Business Growth.

As a business-friendly state, Arkansas offers a range of competitive incentives for businesses looking to open, expand or relocate. Incentives are offered through the Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC) and designed to assist a wide selection of qualifying businesses in various stages of growth. Arkansas's various incentives are nationally competitive, understandable and easy to use.

The AEDC works with new and existing industries and will focus on your business' specific needs to provide a tailored incentive proposal for your project.


Job Creation Incentives

Arkansas offers several types of job creation incentives, including income tax credits, cash rebates, and infrastructure grants.


Investment Incentives

Arkansas’ investment incentive, Tax Back, is a sales and use tax refund for the purchase of building materials, machinery, and equipment.


Targeted Business Incentives

At the discretion of the AEDC Executive Director, businesses may be offered incentives designed to help knowledge-based, start-up businesses.
