How to set up the CIR?

The research tax credit (CIR) is governed by Article 244 quarter B, I of the French General Tax Code and provides in principle a tax credit of 30% of the portion of research expenses not exceeding 100 million euros and 5% thereafter.

To be eligible for the Research Tax Credit, companies must set up a program of basic research, applied research, or experimental development. It is important to be well-informed about eligible expenses, and we recommend that you seek the assistance of a specialized firm.

To learn more about it...

The research tax credit (RTC) is a generic measure to support corporate research and development (R&D) activities, with no sector or size restrictions. Businesses that incur expenditures on basic research and experimental development can benefit from the RTC by deducting them from their income tax under certain conditions. The rate of the RTC varies according to the amount of the investment.
