CIR Research Tax Credit

Enhance your Research and Development effort

The Research Tax Credit (CIR) is a scheme created in 1983 by the French State to encourage research and company development efforts. This tax system is one of the main sources of financing for innovation in France.

The implementation of the CIR system requires vigilance on the eligibility of the R&D projects involved in the calculation of the CIR. The CIR system is particularly complex and requires scientific and tax expertise. In particular, it is important to translate the industrial language commonly used by companies into university semantics accepted by the Ministry of Research (MESRI). If the device is sustainable, it is constantly evolving and requires a recurrent watch on corporate taxation and scientific and technical state-of-the-art.

We bring you our expertise and experience of the CIR system to optimize it while having the concern of securing the amounts declared or perceived with regard to a possible control of expenses by the tax administration.

Who can benefit from the CIR?

Any company carrying out a Research and Development activity in France and subject to corporate or income tax is eligible for the Research Tax Credit.

Associations subject to commercial taxes may also benefit from the Research Tax Credit.

What are the advantages?

This tax measure allows a partial financing of Research & Development (R&D) up to 30% of the expenditures (wages, patents, authorized subcontracting …) in the form of refund or reduction of tax.

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for the Research Tax Credit depends on the level of eligibility of R&D projects for the state of scientific and technical knowledge and the technical and financial justification of the company. For more information, contact us!

CII Innovation Tax Credit

Accelerate your innovations

The Innovation Tax Credit (CII) is a recent initiative created in 2013 by the French State to support companies innovation efforts.

The implementation of the CII system requires a careful audit of the eligibility of innovative projects involved in the calculation of the CII. The CII scheme is new and requires technical and tax expertise. In particular, it is important to translate the industrial language commonly used by companies into the technical and marketing semantics accepted by DIRECCTE.

We bring you our expertise and our experience of the CII system to optimize it while having the concern to secure the amounts declared or perceived with regard to a possible control of expenses by the tax administration.

What are the advantages?

This tax measure allows for partial financing of prototype design work and pilot installations of new products up to 20% of the eligible amounts (capped at € 400,000).

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for the Innovation Tax Credit depends on the level of eligibility for the development of new products regarding their market, the technical and financial justification of the company. For more information, contact us!

CIR & CII approvals

Service providers: Benefit from a competitive advantage and value your expertise
Senders: Integrate your outsourced technical expenses into your CIR / CII

The Research Tax Credit Approval (A-CIR) is intended for subcontractors of R&D work, the device allows their customers to integrate into their own expenses of CIR the R&D work they do for them.

The Innovation Tax Credit Approval (A-CII) is intended for subcontractors of innovation work, the device allows their customers to integrate into their own expenses of CII the innovation work they perform for them.

In addition, accreditation for a subcontracting company has a commercial advantage for service providers.

The request for the Approval requires vigilance on the eligibility of R&D projects under the CIR and / or innovation under the CII. It is particularly important to translate the industrial language, product marketing or service commonly used by companies into academic semantics accepted by the Ministry of Research (MESR) for CIR accreditation and DIRECCTE for CII accreditation.

We bring you our expertise and our experiences of CIR and CII devices to present your R&D and innovation work.

Who can benefit from the CIR & CII approvals?

Any provider of private law (company, association, foundations, …) must hold an approval so that its invoices can be taken into account in the base of the CIR or the CII of its customers.

What are the advantages?

For senders, the advantage of entrusting technical service operations to approved organizations is the recovery of expenditure in the amount of the CIR / CII (up to 30%).

For service providers, this is a recognition by the administration of their expertise and a strong competitive advantage.

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for CIR and / or CII approvals is based on the level of technical, technological or scientific expertise of the organization. For more information, contact us!
