Latest: Release of 2016 edition of R&D tax incentive indicators (February 2017).

 

Governments worldwide increasingly rely on tax incentives in addition to direct support measures (e.g. grants) to promote R&D in firms and encourage innovation and economic growth.  The OECD has developed experimental methodologies and a detailed database on R&D tax incentives with the latest indicators on the cost and information on the design and scope of R&D tax incentives.

Design and scope of R&D tax incentives

 

microBeRD: the impact of R&D tax incentives

The OECD has launched a new micro-data project based on a “distributed” approach to the empirical analysis of micro-data. The microBeRD project investigates and models the incidence and impact of public support for business R&D in collaboration with national experts with access to confidential R&D and public support micro-data. This approach facilitates a co-ordinated statistical analysis of the impact of tax relief design features and their interaction with direct forms of public R&D funding by exploiting variation in support within and across countries.
