In Europe, there’s a strong tendency towards stimulating innovation to drive progress and remain competitive. One of the key goals of the EU is to increase R&D investment to three percent of its gross domestic product. Belgium is currently at around 2.5 percent, so research initiatives are strongly encouraged.
For start-ups and scale-ups, however, the cost of R&D can be onerous with an immense cash burn rate. For mature organisations, the issue is to channel the innovation you wish to pursue and to achieve a tax-efficient business model. As such, a coordinated approach is essential to benefit from the available tax incentives - otherwise you could miss out on opportunities.
We work with you to define and optimise your innovation strategy from a tax perspective. By identifying and leveraging tax credits, we’ll maximise cash benefits from your R&D initiatives.
