New Program Partner PNO Consultants, offers discount on WBSO (R&D tax credit)

Technological development is rewarding!

The WBSO enables you to reduce your R&D costs – not just wage costs, but also other expenses associated with your R&D project, such as the cost of prototypes or research equipment.

Companies who have technically novel projects can apply for WBSO. It is important that the technical novelty of the product or software can be demonstrated, e.g. by providing information on the technical challenges. The WBSO covers part of the wage costs in the form of a reduction in the salaries tax and social insurance contributions for the R&D hours worked or an increase in the income tax allowance of self-employed tax payers.

PNO Consultants can provide advice on WBSO application and offers a discount for StartLife startups.
