Help for investors

Investor support

New Caledonia is very favourable to foreign direct investment. It has developed numerous tax incentives for investors.

The Choose New Caledonia!  Unit is able to identify eligible public support schemes for your project and will inform you about the support you can apply for.

Among the many investment support schemes, the following are worthy of note :


Tax exemption

It allows investors to benefit from a tax deduction in return for their participation in the financing of a project. In 2018, overseas tax exemptions in New Caledonia amounted to nearly  24 billion XPF.

On average, 93% of the applications are approved. Tax exemptions allowed the implementation of strategic investments: the Gondwana submarine cable, the construction of the Sheraton Hotel in Gouaro, Deva, and the KNS metallurgical plant.
