R&D tax credit scheme (WBSO)

With the WBSO (R&D tax credit), the government encourages companies in the Netherlands to invest in technically high-risk R&D projects. These projects mean you don’t know in advance whether the product you are going to make will actually work. You will have to search for a structural solution through technical research and innovative development. This is why it’s called a Research and Development Promotion Act.


How can we help you?
The WBSO (R&D tax credit) is a fiscal scheme with which you as a company can reduce the R&D labour costs. This helps you retain your international competitive strength, ensure knowledge retention and allow you to invest in development.

Of course you can apply for the WBSO (R&D tax credit) yourself, but if you get stuck, we will gladly help you so you can submit the application. Would you rather hand over the process? Then we’ll take care of the entire process for you. We highly value a good relationship with the RVO (Netherlands Enterprise Agency).

Applying for WBSO (R&D tax credit): what does that process entail?
At Real1ze we know the WBSO (R&D tax credit) inside and out. Our team of experienced, technically skilled WBSO (R&D tax credit) experts will interview your team of developers, make detailed descriptions of the technical innovations and of the bottlenecks and then submit the subsidy application for you. Subsequently, the RVO will critically assess your application.









Project- & hours




Your application has been approved, now what?
Is it a go? Our work does not stop at submitting the application; after all, we’re called Real1ze for a reason. Small administrative errors could have significant financial consequences. We will take care of the entire administrative process for you and assist you each step of the way. We will help you meet deadlines and avoid costly mistakes. In addition, we will submit each new application for you, so you can focus on what really matters: developing and innovating.

No cure, no pay
Good to know: we will only submit your application if we’re convinced that your project is eligible for the WBSO. If that turns out not to be the case, you don’t have to pay us. We work with a clear ‘no cure, no pay’ rule and will never be detrimental to your cash flow. What does that mean? We don’t charge a start-up fee, we only bill our fee on the actual realised benefit. Complete transparency; no unexpected costs.

Do you prefer being in full control?

Would you rather set to work on applying for the WBSO yourself, but do you not yet have the necessary knowledge and skills? Then a custom-made WBSO training course taught by one of our experts is just the thing for you. Once completed, you will have all the tools you need to successfully conduct the entire WBSO process yourself. Would you like more information or would you like to receive a quote right away?

Met enkel 64 toekenningen uit een totaal van 1644 indieningen, is het H2020 SME Instrument een erg competitief programma. De toekenning van 2,4 miljoen euro subsidie stelt ons in staat om de productontwikkeling af te ronden en sneller naar de bredere Europese markt te gaan. We zijn oprecht enthousiast over de ondersteuning die Real1ze Projects ons heeft geboden tijdens het aanvraagproces, de daarop volgende presentatie in Brussel en de administratieve inrichting.
