LET FZulG IMPACT YOUR INNOVATION

This brand-new German tax allowance covers R&D project costs of up to 500.000 euros per year.

FZulG, or Forschungszulage, is a new tax-based innovation allowance for companies and organizations undertaking research and development activities. In drafting this brand-new scheme, the German government studied similar programmes abroad, to be able to provide you with the best R&D tax allowance possible. With a tax reimbursement of up to 500.000 euros per year for SMEs, multinationals, and all other business-related taxpayers with R&D-projects, we think they did a good job!

THE BENEFITS OF FZulG

An R&D tax allowance like Forschungszulage is a highly effective way to stimulate innovation. Other countries, like France, the Netherlands and even outside Europe, have been benefiting from increased innovation activities for decades thanks to similar R&D tax credit schemes. And now a brand-new scheme is available in Germany, and you can benefit from it as well! Sure, in a financial sense by the contribution to your R&D costs but also, even more powerful, by being able to invest more in innovation, creating advantages for your organization and the German economy.
