Summary on Research Tax Credit
All companies incurring R&D expenses are eligible to receive France’s research tax credit, regardless of their size, business sector and nationality.
The tax credit covers 30% of all R&D expenses and covers all R&D spending: Salaries, social security contributions, amortization and depreciation allowances, operating costs, subcontracting, patents and monitoring.
The scope of SME spending eligible for the research tax credit has been extended as of 2013 to cover innovation expenses arising from designing prototypes, as well as pilot plants for new products. These expenses are now included in the research tax credit base, at a rate of 20%.
