The new regulations which have become effective since January 1st, 2018, introduced the tax relief in Poland for companies operating in research and development (R&D) sector (an increase from the current level of 50% up to 100 percent tax relief), and in the case of research and development centres up to 150 percent of tax relief. The new act introduces a uniform deduction system in Poland for all companies regardless of the size of the enterprise or the type of these costs.
The changes also apply to universities that will be able to set up companies to manage research infrastructure. The so-called infrastructural companies have to build and share research infrastructure in a more efficient and easier way for the entrepreneurs. It also affects the need to commercialize research on the part of scientific and research institutions. This, in turn, is intended to enable entrepreneurs to use the material and human resources of higher education institutions.
