Tech tax credit is available to entrepreneurs who purchased a technology in non-tangible form, such as rights to computer software, licences, patent or utility model rights, know-how and results of research and development.
Deduction of outlays is independent of the size of an enterprise.
Thanks to the Act on certain forms of supporting innovative activities of 29 July 2005 (Journal of Laws No 179, item 1484), from 2006 entrepreneurs investing in new technologies can benefit from state support.
The above-mentioned act introduces an instrument of tech tax credit on account of the purchase of new technologies. It involves a deduction of a portion of outlays incurred on the purchase of a new technology from tax base. The amount of allowed deduction must not be higher than the income obtained on operations conducted in a given year and it must not exceed 50% of the amount of expenditure related to the purchase of such a technology.
Who is entitled to a tech tax credit
The credit is available if an enterprise has purchased new technologies that have been used globally for not longer than 5 years and that enable the manufacture of new or improved products or services.
The purchase of new technologies is defined as acquiring rights to technological knowledge through the transfer or use of such rights. Therefore, the credit can cover licence agreements regarding the purchase of e.g. software (computer equipment is not covered by the credit). In such a case, one needs to prove that the acquired technology is innovative, has not been used globally for longer than 5 years and whose innovativeness has been determined with an opinion of an independent scientific institution.
Technological innovativeness of Comarch software has been documented with the opinion issued by the AGH University of Science and Technology and it fully satisfies the conditions of obtaining a tech tax credit.
