Global R&D Tax

We are able to help you understand the dynamic landscape of government incentives across the world and how it may impact your innovation investment strategy.



R&D plays a central role in boosting economic growth, job creation, industrial competitiveness, environmental protection as well as advancing human knowledge and well-being. Accordingly, governments, companies and nonprofit organisations around the world have been making substantial investments in R&D, and most countries' incentives policies are continuously being fine-tuned, aiming to become more attractive for R&D investments.

While the core basis of R&D incentives is similar across jurisdictions, with the purpose of rewarding claimants for undertaking R&D via cash injections or reduction of tax liabilities, there are differences in terms of qualifying elements and application procedures. Without knowing the details of incentives schemes in different regions, it could be hard to maximise your funding opportunities. Besides, setting up an overseas R&D practice may involve numerous logistics/administrative challenges, which adds further complication to your decision making and global innovation roadmap planning.
