Claiming the new IP BOX regime

The new method consists in deducting R&D expenses from products resulting from the sale, concession or sub-concession of intangible assets.

A ratio should then be applied to the net result (reduced in particular in the case of intra-group subcontracting)

The tax advantage is therefore now correlated with R&D expenses directly exposed (expenses likely to give rise to the right under certain conditions to the CIR)

Fund your patents and / or use them to obtain funding

Give priority to aid / subsidies before trademark and / or patent filings: up to 50% of subsidy possible via BPI for the financing of patents

For patent costs, two types of accounting are possible: you can choose to recognize patent costs as an expense.

With the CIR (30% expenses are reimbursable and can be entered as exceptional income) or asset immobilization / valuation approach.

All expenses directly attributable to the filing of the patent can be capitalized: file and search fees, examination fees, grant fees, validation fees, translation costs, agent fees, remuneration of the 'agent-engineer, etc. Only annual fees are obligatorily recognized as expenses.
