Using targeted educational, research and innovation policy, Switzerland is trying to further increase its location quality. Strategic investments for example in the educational system improve the basic conditions. However, one important element has until now been left out of the equation: tax incentives for R&D.
A look at other countries shows that this instrument is indispensable for future-oriented educational, economic, and location policy making. But what effects would tax incentives for R&D have on the Swiss economy? This question has been analyzed at the HSG (Hochschule St. Gallen) by Prof. Keuschnigg. In the long term, can Switzerland afford to deprive itself of attractive tax incentives to promote innovation?
According to most of the representatives of the Swiss economy, who took part in a survey of members of the Swiss-American Chamber of Commerce along with clients of KPMG: No. They were also largely in agreement on who the main beneficiaries of such tax incentives should be: Swiss small and mid-size companies.
