ARTES receives Renewal of French Research Tax Credit (CIR) Accreditation

ARTES Biotech­nol­o­gy GmbH today announced that it has just obtained a renew­al of gov­ern­men­tal approval for ‘Crédit d’Impôt Recherche’ (CIR) for a next three-year peri­od from the French Min­istry of High­er Edu­ca­tion and Research (MESR).

The French R&D tax cred­it CIR gives French com­pa­nies the abil­i­ty to claim tax relief on 30% on all gen­er­at­ed costs out­sourced to ARTES’ R&D ser­vices.

We are pleased to receive this renew­al on accred­i­ta­tion from the French Min­istry”, Dr Michael Pio­ntek, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of ARTES. “It allows our cus­tomers in France to ben­e­fit from tax relief of their R&D expens­es com­mit­ted to us and it will help us to tie up our rela­tion­ships with our present clients in France and to install new col­lab­o­ra­tions”.

ARTES Biotech­nol­o­gy is glob­al­ly active as R&D com­pa­ny spe­cial­ized in devel­op­ing bio­phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal and vac­cine pro­duc­tion process­es.
