In Peach County, it’s easy for companies to manage the costs of doing business. Our rural location reduces corporate expenses across the board, while still keeping you within each reach of local, regional, state and international transportation networks. Companies here enjoy a low corporate tax rate (6%) that applies to income earned in our state. Your company can earn tax credits for creating jobs, upgrading or expanding, research and more, as well as tax exemptions for purchasing and inventory. In addition, the state offers special incentives to encourage the creation of small businesses and entrepreneurial ventures.

Business Incentives

Peach County and the state of Georgia provide a wide variety of incentives for business. Attractive packages can be layered on top of lower taxes and a lower cost of living. Here, home prices, energy costs and office space indexes are all well below national averages for comparable areas of the U.S. Need fast track permitting? Quick government approvals? Peach County’s Development Authority will bend over backwards to make things happen for your company. Package those advantages with our strategic location, world-class infrastructure and transportation, and it’s easy to see why our county is truly Georgia’s Peach.


Financial Incentives

With generous financial incentives from Peach County and the state of Georgia, you can transform business ventures into a thriving reality. For start-ups and Fortune 500 companies alike, available tax credits – including workforce retraining – reward you for establishing or relocating your company headquarters, for locating in a geographical area targeted for development, or for contributing to the growth of a specific industry. Small companies find it easier to succeed here with programs designed specifically to meet their needs. Many programs come from the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s regional offices and are developed in conjunction with the University of Georgia, Georgia Tech and other business-support institutions.


Financial Assistance 

Lack of financial assistance is often the greatest barrier to business expansion. Georgia is proactive in providing companies with a wide range of grants and loans through specialized public programs. The variability of this financial assistance has helped thousands of companies foster entrepreneurship, innovation and business development.
