Researchers’ union weighs in on R&D tax credits

The SNCS, a French researchers' union, has criticised the country's system of tax credits for companies investing in R&D, in evidence submitted to a parliamentary inquiry into possible misuse of the system.

In its evidence, the SNCS contested an earlier report from the Acies Consulting Group, which had produced an analysis showing that the CIR system of tax credits boosted research spending in France.

The SNCS countered with its own analysis based on figures from the OECD, showing that R&D investment in France was lower than in many countries with less generous tax incentives.
