At the end of February, the Federal Ministry of Finance finally published a first bill for a tax incentive for research and development.
Ulrich Meißner, tax expert of the VDMA (German Engineering Federation), explained the positions and demands of the mechanical and plant engineering industry with regard to tax research promotion in a public hearing of the Finance Committee of the German Bundestag. In a short conversation with the VDMA capital office, he describes his impressions.
On January 22, 2019, the Greens/EFA Group in the European Parliament published a specially commissioned study to show that companies in the EU are effectively far less taxed than the individual tax laws nominally provide for. In many respects, however, this study has serious shortcomings in terms of content and thus leads to incorrect results.
For many years, the VDMA has been committed to tax incentives for research and development, which should be introduced as a supplement to direct subsidies.
