The Netherlands' top innovation subsidy available again in 2024 with even more budget
On Budget Day, the Budget Memorandum and National Budget were published. This also announced the plans for 2024 for the Netherlands' innovation subsidy: the WBSO. The total available budget will be increased to ensure that enough money remains available to support innovative companies in the Netherlands. There will be 1,446 million in WBSO subsidies available for innovative companies in 2024. Almost one and a half billion euros!
WBSO reduces costs
With the WBSO subsidy, the Dutch government helps companies carry out research and development work by offsetting part of the wage costs and other costs and expenses. Your benefit can amount to as much as €20,000 per R&D employee per year. That's a big saving!
Is your company exploiting the full WBSO potential?
Do you know exactly which activities are and are not eligible, which costs and expenses you can and cannot claim and how many hours you can apply for the WBSO? Our WBSO consultants will be happy to help answer these questions.
Hezelburcht has been applying for WBSO subsidies since the start of the scheme in 1995. By 2023, we estimate that we will have realised more than 23,500 WBSO awards. Our service stands for total unburdening: we prepare and submit the application, answer any question letters, help set up and check the administration and support any audits. Get in touch with us!
