Reduction in patent taxation in 2019

The Finance Law in 2019 reforms the tax regime for the income from patents. The tax rate on licensing revenues (including sub-licenses) or on gains on sales of these patents drops from 15 to 10%, for companies as well as individuals (Law No. 2018-1317 of 28 December 2018). Additionally, the calculation of the tax base is reviewed in order to comply with OECD recommendations (Nexus’ approach*).

This preferential regime also addresses software protected by copyright and patentable inventions, if they are certified by INPI (French National Institute of Industrial Property).

* The Nexus’ approach consists of conditioning the benefits of the tax regime of revenues from assets to the R&D expenditure for development carried oud on national territory.
