CIR accreditation, a competitive advantage
CIR accreditation is a system implemented by the Ministry of Research and Innovation to allow companies to reduce their subcontracting and research costs by up to 40% in certain cases (see General Tax Code, article 244, quater B).
This accreditation is open to member countries of the European Union and the European Economic Area. CIR accreditation allows the client company to know whether the service provider is competent to carry out research, development and innovation.
The service provider must meet criteria in the following fields in order to benefit from the accreditation:
- Type of research carried out
- Legal status
- Country of domicile
For a first CIR accreditation application, the file must be submitted between the 15th of December and the 15th of March. The applicant must then allow a period of 6 months after submitting the accreditation application, starting from when it is completed and sent to the Ministry of Research and Innovation.
