Through the Promotion of Research and Development Act (WBSO) you can receive tax benefits for R&D projects in the broadest sense, to reduce costs. Small companies, large companies and the self-employed can make use of the WBSO. R&D costs that qualify for WBSO concern wage costs, but also, for example, setting up experiments or building prototypes. WBSO can only be applied for future work. You are eligible if you develop a product, production process or software, or carry out technical-scientific research. In the past, space related projects related to data communication and harvest forecasting have been funded.
