The innovation deduction: a nice saving on corporate tax


The new innovation departure

The new innovation deduction is the successor to the patent deduction (IP box). As a result, you reduce corporation tax from 25% to 5.1% for net income that’s related to innovation that’s protected by intellectual property (including through a patent). The deduction cannot simply be applied but requires thorough prior study and a meticulous documentation obligation. Venture Campus helps you with all the steps you need to take to apply the innovation deduction. The first step is a feasibility study to see if the deduction is applicable to your organisation. We assist you in drawing up the file that is required for a tax audit and can also assist you in applying for a tax ruling.

Applicable to sales of innovative products and services

Do you sell innovative products and services? The innovation deduction could well be applicable to the turnover attributable to this.

The innovation deduction cannot be applied lightly

There is a lot to look at in the innovation deduction. Are you in possession of the right patents? Do you have a correct time tracking system for your developers? Are your general conditions well defined? Is the transfer of the right of use to your customer in the right way? Are your R & D activities registered (and approved) at BELSPO? …
