What is an Innovation Box?

The Dutch Innovation Box is a comprehensive preferential tax regime that covers both income tax relief (effective, i.e. the effective rate falls to 9% on innovation income) and payroll and contribution tax relief for social insurance. The mode is available to companies resident in the Netherlands and Dutch private entrepreneurs (EMZ).


WBSO certificate

Obtaining a WBSO certificate is both a necessary step in the transition to the Innovation Box regime and an additional benefit: a taxpayer who acts as a tax agent (or EMZ for himself) and has this certificate has the right to deduct from the total amount of payroll tax a certain amount of the total base research and development (R&D) costs. This deduction is from 19.000 euros / year, but in principle it can be much higher.
