The report “Business breathing a sigh of relief. 5 years of R&D relief in Poland ”summarises the first years of this mechanism being in force. The R&D tax relief was intended to encourage companies to increase their R&D activities thanks to the possibility of deducting part of the costs incurred from tax.
The report was prepared on the basis of a survey conducted by Opinia24 among entrepreneurs conducting research and development activities and our own analyses. It includes, among others, data obtained from the Ministry of Finance, comparison of the scope of the Polish tax relief with its counterparts in Germany and the Czech Republic, and proposed changes to make the R&D relief an even more attractive pro-innovation instrument.
Among the surveyed companies that develop R&D activities:
have heard of the R&D relief
are hampered from increasing their innovation by insufficient cooperation with scientific and research institutions
perceive their level of innovativeness as good as compared to international competition
From the report you will learn, among others:
- What are the strengths and weaknesses of Polish innovation?
- What sources of financing innovation can entrepreneurs use?
- What was the 5-year R&D relief in Poland like?
- What eligible costs should the R&D tax allowance be extended to?
