Calculate your Research Allowance
Amount of research funding
The amount of the research allowance is 25% of the eligible expenses for R&D projects under FZulG. The maximum limit is €1 million, and the assessment limit is set at €4 million. Eligible expenses are labor wages with ancillary costs, contract research and the sole proprietor’s own contribution (Section 3 (1) to (4) FZulG).
A combination with other funding is possible in principle, but a double funding is excluded. The expenses under Section 3 (1) to (4) of the Research Grants Act may thus not be funded with funds from other grants and subsidies.

With this research allowance calculator, you can determine the amount of the research allowance yourself. This is, of course, subject to a certificate from the BSFZ in accordance with Section 6 of the Research Grants Act and after recognition of the amount in the tax assessment from your tax office.
How much time can your research and development team spend on the application? Can you tell if your project is eligible under Frascati rules? Do you know if you have identified all the expenses that fall under the research allowance?
We help you with the application according to § 6 of the Research Grants Act and optimize your chances.
