Is your business benefitting from valuable R&D Tax Credit incentives?

R&D Tax in Chemicals The chemical industry is one of the main industrial pillars of the Belgian economy. With a market of approximately €65 billion in 2018, Belgium is known worldwide for its technical expertise, operational excellence and unique network. Polymers, pharmaceuticals, inorganic chemicals, and natural gas are some of the chemistry fields in the Belgian industrial landscape that have the potential to be eligible for R&D incentives. It is estimated that as much as €4.5 billion was invested in R&D by those companies just in 2018. The government has understood the importance of such investments to keep Belgium a globally recognized nerve centre in the field of chemistry and has consequently set a number of financial incentives to contribute to this R&D effort.

Examples of qualifying activities include:

  • Development of new synthetic routes at lab scale
  • Development or optimisation of industrial processes for chemical production
  • Development of analytical methods
  • Production, analysis, and testing of pilot batches
  • Feasibility and safety studies for industrial processes
  • Formulation of a new compound or reformulation of an existing drug to improve its characteristics/performances (e.g. shelf-life, safety, efficacy, etc.)
  • Computational studies and modelling
  • Automation and software development
  • Experimental plan design, testing, and result analysis
  • Project management, reporting, and writing communication materials
