Corporate R&D Report

Experience from recent years suggests that a number of companies are unable to clearly separate R&D activities from other activities and, as a result, they claim none or only some of the available incentives. While it is quite obvious that pharmaceutical, chemical or IT services companies engage in R&D activities, it may come as a surprise that financial, agricultural, food, and even energy companies have also been R&D intensive sectors.

The purpose of the survey was to formulate proposals for the regulatory environment and funding policies which are based on the opinion and expectations of related medium-sized and big national and multinational companies. The survey was started in Hungary in 2011, now it is regional and to be repeated annually that will, furthermore, enable a comparison of the achievements and expectations of companies  country by country and from year to year.

Deloitte's 2013 Corporate R&D Survey clearly reveals that a predictable regulatory environment is still a key factor in shaping Hungarian companies' R&D spending, but – unlike in former years - this is no longer the most important criterion. It is also evident that grants and incentives greatly facilitate the extent of R&D spending in Hungary. Accordingly, less frequent legislative changes affecting R&D and regular grant opportunities would yield signifi cant results in increasing corporate R&D spending.

For the first time, this year companies from four other Central European countries were involved in the survey as well as 52 Hungarian respondents. This has allowed us to identify differences between the individual countries and to compare the 2013 results with previous years.

In addition to the questions in last year's questionnaire, this year the analysis has covered the regulatory changes of the Hungarian R&D incentive regime effective from 1 January 2012 and the introduction of the R&D qualification procedure, effective from 1 February 2012. 

Simultaneously with the survey in Hungary, this year we conducted similar surveys in Slovakia and the Czech Republic to identify differences between the individual countries - in addition to comparing certain aspects of the survey last year and in 2012.

Deloitte Hungary’s R&D and Government Incentives service line conducted a survey (Corporate R&D Report 2011) for the first time with the participation of nearly five hundred Hungarian middle-sized and large enterprises on the factors (particularly tax incentives and cash grants) affecting the realisation of their R&D activities. The purpose of the survey was to formulate proposals for the regulatory environment and funding policies. The survey to be repeated annually will, furthermore, enable a comparison of the achievements and expectations of companies from year to year.

According to the results, companies do not expect their expenditures related to R&D activities to rise significantly in the near future while it would be indispensable for the Government to involve the private sector in its plan to achieve the key objective of increasing R&D spending to 1.8% of Hungary’s GDP until 2020. Although in the light of the above it seems sensible to further raise awareness of available cash grants and tax incentives one must not believe that this alone could help increase corporate R&D expenditure.
