Effective date: 1 January 2022

What changes?

Does your company carry out research and development services (Speur- en Ontwikkelingswerk, S&O)? From 1 January 2022, it will be easier to file your application for tax deduction. For instance, you will be able to file an application for a project that starts in the next calendar month. This way you can sooner file the expected extra hours, costs, and expenses for projects that were already granted.

R&D tax credit (S&O afdrachtvermindering) is better known as the WBSO R&D tax credit scheme. The WBSO compensates part of the wage costs and other expenses for your research and development work.

For whom?

  • entrepreneurs performing R&D projects

When?
