Is your business investing in innovative programmes or projects?

Take advantage of the R&D tax credit or investment deduction

The Research and Development tax credit

Taxpayers who incur R&D expenses as part of their business activities can benefit from the tax relief for research and development.

R&D tax relief makes it possible to deduct tax-deductible costs incurred for research and development activities (the so-called eligible costs) from the tax base.

All entrepreneurs conducting R&D activities (regardless of their size) can benefit from a deduction of 100% of eligible costs, and research and development centers up to 150%.
