Spotlight on the Investment Deduction The challenge of innovation plays a key role in the growth of a modern, knowledge-based economy. The Belgian Government supports Research and Development (R&D) and innovation at both the federal and regional levels using R&D tax incentives to support these activities.

Increase Investment Deduction or Tax Credits

Companies can deduct a percentage of the acquisition or investment value of certain assets that have been acquired or developed during the taxable period and are related to R&D. This deduction comes in addition to the annual depreciation expense of qualifying assets. The investment deduction may be calculated either as a one-shot deduction or spread over the depreciation period.
