R&D Incentives in Sweden:
Improve your company performance through R&D Incentives

What are R&D Incentives?

In July 2021 the Swedish government reinforced once more the incentive by increasing the threshold to 1,2 Million of SEK and decreased the working time criteria from 75% to 50 %.

The aim of the this reinforcement is to promote R&D activities by granting a research and development incentive to companies irrespective of their profit situation. There is a clear intention from the government to encourage companies to take benefit of this scheme.

The scheme was created in 2014 and was already reinforced in April 2020 by the Swedish government. Indeed, the relief was increased from 10% to 19,59 % and the capped amount from 230 000 SEK/ month to 920 000 SEK/month.

Therefore, companies working on R&D projects can be entitled to a relief of 19,59% of their employer contributions capped to 1,2 Million/ month.

This incentive can be claimed back for the current year and the 6 previous years.

Do You Qualify?

Companies can benefit from an incentive up to 19,59% on a maximum of 1,2 Million of SEK per month of their employer contributions.
