VAN HAVERMAET PROVIDES AN INTEGRATED APPROACH THAT INCREASES YOUR RETURN ON INVESTMENT

01 Investments

If your company invests in growth, innovation or digitization, you can often count on various tax benefits or subsidies to recuperate part of that cost. Specific rules apply to expenditures related to research and development, energy-saving investments and digital investments.
But in order to take full advantage of any benefits, the entrepreneur must take into account the many rules of the game, which includes accounting, tax, legal and subsidies. For example, have you considered appropriately capitalizing your R&D costs in order to claim all available tax benefits and subsidies?

The VH Innovation team knows these rules like the back of their hand, so why not call us for assistance?

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

• R&D investment deduction
• R&D tax credit
• Energy-saving investment deduction
• Digital investment deduction
• Subsidies

02 Revenue

When you think of profit, you inevitably also think of the tax authorities, who take away a large part of that profit through taxes. Nevertheless, the companies that advance our economy with their technological innovations have an advantage over the tax authorities. After all, the tax burden can decrease significantly if you make your innovation projects not only future proof, but also tax proof!

Sounds easy enough, but nothing short of a higher mathematics degree will help you make sense of the complex calculation methods. Feel free to ask for VH Innovation’s calculator to do the work!

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?

• Patent deduction
• Innovation deduction
• Corporate income tax exemption subsidies
• Subsidies

EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A SOLID BASE

Our plan of action starts with a strong foundation and extends over various specializations in financial, legal, tax and social law fields.

  • IP SCAN & STRATEGY

    Do you have an innovative idea and you’d like to protect it? Then you can contact us to clarify all angles strategically and substantively. What part of the intellectual property do you want to protect and for which territory? How do you wish to integrate intellectual property into your corporate structure? What consequences does this have in terms of your business plan, legal protection, required intragroup invoices, taxation, etc.

    Via a targeted IP Scan we provide you with a roadmap to tackle all issues in a practical way.

  • IP CONTRACTING

    In order to benefit from this optimal protection, it is important to draw up contracts in accordance with the statutory conditions. Moreover, it is useful to give sufficient thought to an appropriate layout of the legal framework from a legal and tax point of view. The choice of wording in your Terms & Conditions, license agreement or copyright agreement can undoubtedly have an impact on your tax file.

    We also monitor your shareholder interests. Just think about drawing up a shareholders’ agreement or consider corporate governance.

  • FINANCIAL REPORTING

    Do you also like a clear report where you can see which IP is responsible for which costs and revenues? Have you already thought about reporting your (innovation) profit per type of product and service?

    Through our tax and reporting tools, we offer you the necessary tools to manage your innovative company and to vigorously optimize it. This allows you to predict the future proactively.

  • IP VALUATION

    You may be wondering what your IP may be worth in the market. A better insight helps you in your commercial negotiations. Or maybe you are on the brink of a round of investments or perhaps even an exit?

    Our financial valuation experts assist you with a substantiated valuation of your innovative company. Our transfer pricing advisors also provide you with a study to determine a market-based license fee. In doing so, they take into account all the special aspects that you have in mind in the commercialization of your innovative products or processes.
