WBSO is a tax incentive for every company in The Netherlands investing in research & development (R&D) and developing technological innovations themselves. This grant partly compensates your company’s wage costs of employees carrying out directly R&D. You can deduct this grant of the monthly paid wage tax and social security contributions paid for these R&D employees.
WBSO is also open for ICT projects, however it need to prove the development of new ‘informational technological principles’. You can apply for software related development project or technical research, and although it is less common, you may also apply for technical scientific researches and feasibility studies on software as well.
Companies can apply for WBSO three times a year. RTE Adviesgroep has more than 15 years of experience acquiring WBSO subsidy funding for various R&D projects, and for a wide variety of small and medium-sized businesses.
