Innovation income deduction

Does your business develop innovative projects of programs?

Do you own a patent or a computer program protected by copyright? If you do, then you may be able to benefit from a very attractive Belgian tax measure: Innovation Income Deduction.

In 2017, Belgium replaced Patent Income Deduction (PID) with Innovation Income Deduction (IID). One of the major changes in this measure was the inclusion of innovative computer programs protected by copyright.

IID reduces the tax base for corporation tax.  These reductions can be as much as 85% of the net income attributable to eligible intellectual property rights, in particular for patents or software protected by copyright.  

MoneyOak examines and confirms the eligibility of these intellectual property rights.
