Do you link questions such as "Which work steps/tasks and methods are/were used to achieve the goal?" and "Explain which engineering, natural science, humanities, or social science obstacles can be identified for the solution approach of your project?" with a tax consultant?

Since the funding program is called "steuerliche Forschungszulage", many people think directly of the tax advisor. However, the steuerliche Forschungszulage is also an R&D project grant (research and development) in which concrete R&D projects must be presented. In order to be able to claim the steuerliche Forschungszulage from the tax office at all, a project application - a so-called certificate - must first be applied for and approved. In the application for a certificate, the objective/solution path and the technical risks, among other things, must be elaborated. The application for a certificate has nothing to do with the tax.


Why then the word "tax" in the "steuerliche Forschungszulage"?

The offsetting does not take place in a 3-month cycle, as is the case with most projects, but within the framework of the next initial assessment of income or corporation tax by offsetting against the assessed tax. For this purpose, a precise project post-calculation must be prepared, in which, of course, our experts at EurA AG will be happy to assist you.
