FRANKFORT, Kentucky — An Australian company is looking to put a facility in Louisville that the company says would create 250 jobs with wages at $20 per hour.

Computershare Inc. says it is considering spending $12 million to open a facility in Louisville. Monday, the Kentucky Economic Development Authority approved up to $2.5 million in state tax incentives for the company should it decide to open an office in Kentucky. The incentives include letting the company keep up to 3 percent of state and 1 percent of local payroll taxes.

The company is publicly traded on the Australian Stock Exchange and says it has more than 14,000 employees around the world. The company specializes in investor services, which includes documenting the legal ownership of securities and paying dividends to shareholders.
