Applus+ Certification Expands Its Scope for Certifying Research, Development, and Innovation Projects


    The 25th of July 2024 is the deadline for companies with projects in research, development, and innovation (R&D+i) to request their motivated reports. A crucial step is the project certification as stipulated by Royal Decree 1432/2003.

    Why is it important to obtain the motivated report?

    To take advantage of the benefits established in Article 35 of the Corporate Tax Law, it is advisable to obtain a Binding Motivated Report, issued by the Ministry of Science and Innovation (MICINN).

    To obtain this report, a certificate issued by an entity accredited by ENAC, such as Applus+ Certification, must be presented. This certification is key to obtaining tax benefits for carrying out research and development and technological innovation activities (R&D+i).
