Life Sciences and Pharma

Give value to your projects and investments. Are you maximising your potential?

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

R&D in Life Sciences and Pharma Research and innovation represent the core of the Life Sciences and Pharma sector. From the lab bench to the manufacturing chain, the R&D efforts of these companies are massive, and they entail significant financial investments. However, many activities and investments carried out in this setting are not taking advantage of the tax relief or R&D incentives that the government has made available. In Belgium, Biotech and Pharma companies, CDMOs, Manufacturing sites, CROs and Regulatory Compliance Offices are well-positioned to be eligible for incentives linked to innovation and R&D. These measures can help offset costs in areas such as staff salaries, equipment, infrastructure expenses, corporate income tax, or copyright tax.

Examples of qualifying activities include:

  • Developing new or improved pharmaceuticals, biologics or medical devices, or products
  • Formulating a new compound or reformulation of an existing drug to improve its characteristics/performances (e.g. shelf-life, safety, efficacy, etc.)
  • Developing methods, protocols, procedures, or processes (lab-scale or industrial scale)
  • Developing novel hardware and software systems (e.g. data analysis and elaborations, monitoring manufacturing rates, quality checks, etc.)
  • Improving existing manufacturing processes or technologies
  • Establishing a new factory or production line with the use of new technology or new manufacturing techniques
  • Design, management, execution, and reporting of clinical studie
  • Preparing regulatory files
