The digital transformation of the industry is visible to the naked eye, and an increasing number of enterprises use production automation systems and modern robots.

5 elements of the tax relief system supporting innovation and production

The key is to understand all the changes. If you run your own company and use robots in your everyday activities or want to use them in the near future, you should first of all learn as much as possible about the system of tax reliefs supporting innovation and production.

It consists of 5 basic elements, i.e.:

  • tax relief for robotization, which allows owners of manufacturing enterprises to deduct from tax the costs of robots and all devices that are functionally related to them (up to 50% tax deductible costs);
  • development relief (R&D), which is an extension of the current research and development relief. It includes increasing the level of costs eligible for relief from 100% to 200% (for CBR and employee costs);
  • tax relief for a prototype, which allows for additional deduction of expenses related to trial production and introducing new solutions to the market;
  • innovative employees, according to which the relief may be settled from employees' PIT advances (when, as a result of a loss or due to the amount of income, it is impossible to settle robotization relief or R&D);
  • Polish Investment Zone, which replaces SEZs (Special Economic Zones) and allows for exemption from income tax (CIT and PIT) in the case of new investments (for 10-15 years and up to PLN 70% of the investment value).
