LINKING WBSO R&D TAX CREDITS WITH THE INNOVATION BOX
Starting in 2017, the Innovation Box will be in line with the WBSO program. This means that if you are granted WBSO credits, you may also apply to the Innovation Box. Often overlooked by companies, this program helps lower your corporate tax rate significantly.
How does it work? If you apply for patents or self-produce intellectual property (IP) or intangible assets, income derived from an approved project will be taxed at the rate of 5% (the regular corporate tax rate is roughly 25%)!
RDP has been assisting companies claim R&D tax credits for over 25 years. Daily experience with claim preparation enables us to simplify the process for our clients while maximising their returns. We also help companies implement internal processes that will identify and document all R&D projects and costs to support their claims.
