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:
- The one who usually leads this deduction is usually the financial department, usually excessively conservative and strange to the R+D+i activities.
- 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.
- 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?
