About the research allowance

The goal of the research allowance, which is the responsibility of the Federal Ministry of Education & Research, is to strengthen Germany as an investment location and to stimulate the research activities of small and medium-sized enterprises in particular.

The law provides tax benefits for research expenditures by companies subject to taxation in Germany - regardless of size, legal form and industry - and is intended to provide incentives to invest in research and development (R&D).
