New German tax credit scheme facilitates research and development

Germany based companies and organizations can claim R&D project costs of up to 500.000 Euro per year for their research and development activities. This as a result of the German Research Allowance Act (German: Forschungszulage), that came into effect on 1 January 2020. The Forschungszulage was issued to stimulate German economy by a contribution to labour costs and eligible expenses and to upgrade Germany as a business location for innovative companies. In drafting this brand-new scheme, the German government studied similar programmes abroad, to be able to provide you with the best R&D tax allowance possible.

ARTTIC European leader in consultancy and management services for Research and Technological DevelopmentThe Forschungszulage enables small and medium sized companies, start-ups, large corporations and (private) research organisations to receive allowance of up to 25 percent with a maximum yearly allowance sum of 500.000 Euros per applicant or applicant group. Research and development projects have to fulfil certain criteria to be eligible for the tax-based innovation allowance.
