The development of non-agricultural economic activities and broadly understood enterprise is generally recognised as the best way of resolving the problems of the rural community and rural areas. The preparation and adoption of methods leading to the achievement of economic goals are among the most difficult tasks connected with local development. The emergence of many new economic entities in rural areas, besides those specialising in agricultural production that play the dominating role, is connected with the creation of conditions facilitating their operation. The author of the article presents a review of enterprise supporting instruments, which do not apply directly to changes in the operation of farms, but which serve to support non-agricultural economic activities in rural areas and local communities.
