The value of Innovation and deductions for R & D & i

La valeur de l'immatériel

We are forgetting that there is no glory without effort. The environment of uncertainty and constant changes in which we live today, lead us to the challenge of making decisions constantly, unless we choose not to make decisions and we are doomed to lose the train, and even lose it permanently.

In this vision, as in many others, we have American society and individuals as an example of assumption of our own destiny, whether or not there is uncertainty. The American, is not thinking about someone solving his life, but assumes challenges and advances making decisions, an attitude that ensures a high degree of success. Making decisions leads to the proposal of actions, decision-action or decision-attitude are fundamental to be made with resources, with capacity to address what is coming, with a way of approaching situations, etc., deep down is a resource of the planning.

In our experience, there are many cases that we have found, in which R & D + i projects with a specific initial focus, lead to open paths not initially proposed, but providing new solutions more important and relevant than initially thought. This type of scenarios are typical in R + D + i, usually you always learn something new, you always end up knowing how to do something that you did not know before how to tackle or overcome.

The hope of some SMEs in which a large company is acting as a tractor, to facilitate its own innovative activity, does not seem to work in Spain. It is the SMEs themselves that are making the greatest innovative effort. Innovation is already identified as a competitive need, not just technological leadership, but at the level of competitiveness, of pure survival.

If the innovation is not planned, it is tremendously easy for the improvement effort to remain in inefficient tasks that only consume resources without providing relevant value. There are different ways and methods to get hold of an innovation strategy, also to make decisions and actions that lead to innovation and improvement, but the key issue is to decide. This initial positioning, which in addition to mentally repeat "I have to change", "I have to do things differently", "I need the staff to collaborate", "what could innovate?", Etc, can lead to really take decisions and address innovation and improvement activities.

As the environment of change and innovation normally fall within the scope of the vision and approach of people, in the value generated and offered by companies, etc., in the intangible, it is more than interesting to have external resources, consultants like us. There are companies that even end up losing the opportunity to apply tax deductions for R + D + i, for not addressing innovation in a planned or structured way, or under a series of actions determined from decisions in which the company's management is key, and determines the level of success.

Beyond the way of financing innovation, and where applicable, tax deductions for R & D & I, is the market value of these intangibles, of that innovation and the ability to innovate, of that company image that influences and it attracts markets, from that perception that other companies and investors create, and that ultimately define a very important part of the valuation of a company, whatever its sector (graphic of Brand Finance GIFT, October 2018), and more important if possible, of the vision of the future about a company. In this graph, in addition to being evident that value, it is even more surprising the magnitude of those assets not quantified, quantification that can be valued as assets, or be valued by the market or market price, but always requires an initial quantification, for which, the documentation of R + D + i activities, such as the one we carry out to prepare tax deductions for R + D + i, is an interesting approach to identify and evaluate R + D + i activities.

The annual opportunity of R&D&i deductions

Prototypes I + D + i

Companies usually move on safe roads, at least it is usually the preference, but also almost every company says innovate. Based on figures of estimates on innovative companies, it seems that about 50 to 60% are left without applying this deduction of those who could do so. why?

We can identify three reasons why this happens:

  1. The one who usually leads this deduction is usually the financial department, usually excessively conservative and strange to the R+D+i activities.
  2. Due to the uncertainty in the self-assessment of the IS, which does not depend on the company, but on the validity of the certifications, including IMV of Mineco, regarding what is expressed by the AEAT that always reserves the last word in Inspection or Courts.
  3. The distance between the Technical and Financial departments, especially when the taxes part is managed by external advisors.

From ATEC+ID we want to transfer to the companies the reality that the management of the deductions for R+D+i implies, collaborating in the reality of each one and its effort of improvement and innovation. The innovation itself requires managing a minimum risk, a certain capacity to assume that not everything goes well, or what has been called "tolerance to error", even deductions for R+D+i do not demand that the result always results in what is expected or in a fully successful result. If a company is making an effort in R+D+i, why not take advantage of this incentive, or other related ones?

Aborder l'innovation pour le changement rapide

 

Very successful day organized by El Español, with the participation of a good range of visions on the current situation in the development of entrepreneurship or business action. Antonio Garamendi, president of Cepyme closed the day with several messages, the most relevant being the sentence against the Law 20/2013 of Market Unit, a serious matter when the world goes in the opposite direction, although in essence the sentence does not Either against the concept, or against the way in which it has been defined.

From ATEC + ID we highlight the master class of Iñaki Ortega, director of the Deusto Business School, in which he gave a close look at the profound changes that are taking place in the economy, in the types of work, in business and companies , As well as a certain amount of persuasion about them, absolutely necessary at the moment. If we want to continue in the evolution of things, it is absolutely necessary to innovate, accept changes, change structures, change our business processes, the way we do Things, gain visibility, etc. It is something that we have been commenting article after article since we were born in 2006 as ATEC + ID. Turning around and not attending to this aspect, may not have an effect in the short term (or that we do not see it), but even in the medium term has it, do not wait too long to see or suffer the consequences if not We act As Iñaki Ortega put it, what is happening is directly related to two aspects, technology and crisis, this second issue that we really see as a new way of being things, we believe that everything has accelerated, but not to slow down But to continue being like this, things are going to do, they will happen, it is going to be more speeded up than now. In this sense Iñaki Ortega pronounced when assessing the fall of several myths and barriers, when referring to the fall of what has been called Moore's Law, in reference to that until now the speed of processing was doubling each year, increase Which has become exponential.

Along with a clear identification of the myths that are falling, he also pointed out a number of personality aspects that have also evolved or have changed in recent years, as a certain transparency and honesty is now required, as well as intelligence and low doses Of arrogance.

You can consult more details of the event in El Español, and do not forget that ATEC + ID can help to make the innovative effort of your company profitable, we can also collaborate in optimizing processes, facilitating change, promoting continuous improvement, giving Web visibility or build it, develop Apps, etc.

Transgenics Are A Solution

Les transgéniques sont une solution

 

Extraordinary day that took place on 30 June 2017 at the headquarters of the Pons Foundation in Madrid, where Bayer CropScience Iberia, CSIC, and UC3M shared an open discussion and discussion topics on the future of food, With special reference to transgenics and innovation in the food sector.

It is not a secret that many people die of hunger in the world, nor is it a secret that one of the goals globally accepted is to eradicate hunger, at least nobody dares to say that this second is not one of its objectives, we could say that Eradicating hunger would be a holistic, not an ideological one.

The human population grows at a faster rate than natural genetic improvements occur in slow evolutionary processes. Today's technology allows genetic modifications to be made today, with results similar to those produced in a genetic evolution, and in addition, with already evident evidence that they are not detrimental to health. In addition, this can be done already, without leaving trace or proof that there has been modification. The European Union, at the scientific level knows and has proven that there is no problem, and simply leaves the need to inform in etiquette as a right to know what is eaten, although after giving freedom to each country to regulate about these regulations. This is where ideology appears, and where countries with no particular interest in such products or markets, because they do not have companies and scientists in these contents, prohibit or hinder their entry, in short, that has been called protectionism for a long time .

Genetic modifications are used to obtain seeds with improved properties or capabilities in specific climates, etc., where it is especially interesting to use less soil than an ordinary crop, being able to triple this ability, that is, to produce more with less .

The technology is offering new solutions and advances in all fields, also for food, whose progress we have been benefiting with better health and quality, continues to advance in the digitization of agriculture, through sensorization, etc., Technology is agnostic, but politics does not seem to help against hunger.

Economical Advantages for R&D&i and Growth

Avantages économiques de la R & D pour la croissance

 

From ATEC+ID we want to convey and reinforce the idea, and proven fact, of the key thing is to innovate and improve processes and products by introducing these concepts into the strategies of business models to achieve the success of our companies, from obtaining a solid long-term growth to survive. The introduction of Innovation and Improvement activities of processes and products and services, within the strategy of companies as a model to generate news, is one of the options, it can also be invest in contracting R & D, or buy the R & D & I results, collaborate between internal and external teams, etc. All these modalities have their economic advantages, which can be materialized through tax deductions for R & D & I, and also sometimes through subsidies. The strategy to take to optimize the use of these advantages may include all these, and even other mechanisms, but not using anyone seems nowadays somewhat "out of the market". It is clear that innovation (R & D & I understood globally) and the improvement of our processes, products and services, is key, basic to ensure the future of a company, and in this chapter Spain has a long journey as described in the article of the EAE Business School a few days ago, where Spanish investment in R & D + i is 39% lower than that of the European average, which is around 2% of GDP (in Spain only 1.22%), from where it has not moved in the last 5 years. This article also wants to bring here another very good article recently published in La Vanguardia where the image said "let them to innovate", and a third study from BCG (Boston Consulting Group), in which for the nth year there is no Spanish company among the 50 companies Most innovative in the world..

Among the incentives that can be used are public subsidies end tax deductions for R & D & i, with large differences between both, among which we would like to name two very significant: deductions allow companies to follow their own strategies, content, planning, etc., while subsidies only finance what the political will of the moment want, and secondly, because the deductions are directly applicable, with well-known periods of profitability, two interesting advantages on the tax dedudction side, now that July tax settlement for businesses is approaching. Call us, we can help you !!
