Despite being often presented in the Anglo-Saxon press as a country in decline, France is among the most integrated and most invested industrialized countries in globalization. A nation of tradition and technological innovation, France remains a major agricultural country with an impressive industrial know-how and innovative spirit which has enabled it to solidify its place at the forefront of the race between globalized economies. As a rich country and enterprising country, France, like India, has an inclusive economy. This is why in France, as in India, family firms have a vital role in economic development. In addition, in our two nations the role of the state is strategic in limiting excessive specialization and maintaining a wide range of industrial sectors. In the words of the French president in his interview with
The Times of India
 (February 13, 2013) : “Indians will find in France the best technology, a high level of infrastructure, a workforce of exceptional quality and, what’s more, in the heart of the largest economy in the world : that of Europe.” Last, beyond the strictly economic and financial aspects, France remains a country where life is good. So come discover France. You will not be disappointed!

Covers 30% of all R&D costs up to
100 million
and 5% above this threshold
. As of 2013, innovation expenses incurred by SMEs are also eligible for the research tax credit (up to
80,000 of tax credit a year).
 France’s research tax credit is also
a powerful incentive for research partnerships
, as all expenditure contracted out to public-sector bodies is double-counted, thereby effectively
doubling the research tax credit 
. Salaries paid to junior final-year doctoral and post-doctoral research personnel on their first permanent contract are quadruple-counted when calculating the research tax credit for two years.
 The research tax credit and “innovative new company” (JEI) schemes have been fixed for five  years to provide businesses with visibility and legal security.
 France’s public investment bank, bpifrance, offers two solutions to promote the use of the research tax credit by micro-enterprises and SMEs, by guaranteeing and pre-financing the research tax credit.
More than 15,000 businesses have received the research tax credit 
, declaring
18.39 billion of research expenditure in 2011. Total tax relief for research tax credit recipients amounts to
5.17 billion.
France is ranked first in Europe for corporate tax rates on R&D operations
, taking into account tax bases, depreciation allowances, tax exemptions and tax credits. (
