The State of Georgia continues its No. 1 ranking for cost of doing business and business climate in 2018, according to Area Development and Site Selection magazines. The state continues its success in job creation and investment with the expansion of existing companies as well as the attraction of new companies. The state has a myriad of incentive programs designed to attract high wage jobs, industry specific jobs and investment, as well as location specific jobs. A company’s decision on where to add new jobs and investment is based on numerous factors, and the state took favorable steps towards addressing some of the most critical factors during the 2018 legislative session. The governor signed multiple tax and incentive bills that will bolster the state’s position in the future. For more, check out the infographic below from our Atlanta Research team:
