Encouraging private investment in research and development (R&D) has become a priority for strategic growth in Spain. Since 1978, there have been significant tax deductions available for R&D projects in Spain. The Publication of Real Decreto RD 1432/2003 establishes a mechanism of legal safety. It ‘ensures’ tax reductions for R&D projects certified by an ENAC Accredited Body through the Informe Motivado Vinculante (Motivated Binding Report) issued by the Ministry for Economy and Competitiveness.
