Innovation Tax Credit (CII)



CII is an SME-only programme. The scheme is extended until 31 December 2024. 

Every year, 8,000 companies benefit from this scheme and can combine it with the CIR or the JEI, even if more than half of them only claim the CII. 

Innovation Tax Credit (CII) supports SMEs 


It provides support to companies incurring innovation expenditure. Beneficiaries can claim a tax credit equal to 20% of the expenditure incurred in designing and/or producing prototypes or piloting a new product. 

Whether used on its own or combined with other schemes such as CIR or JEI, the CII will help you fund your innovative projects and secure your future growth.  


Eligibility criteria

  • Improving performance in one or more of these 4 areas: eco-design, technology, ergonomics, functionalities
