As of January 1st, 2009 the principles of granting technological credit will change. It will be granted by commercial banks from their own means, whereas BGK will pay off a part of an incurred credit in a form of technological bonus from the Technology Credit Fund.

Technological credit will be granted to micro, small and meduim-sized enterprises by these commercial banks, which will sign a co-operation agreement with BGK. It will be possible to use the Fund's means merely for technological bonuses. BGK will only decide about a partial repayment of credits, by granting a thermomodernization bonus.
