CENTOGENE Receives French Research Tax Credit Accreditation

Partners able to claim up to 30% tax relief

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and ROSTOCK, Germany, and BERLIN, Jan. 24, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Centogene N.V. (Nasdaq: CNTG), the essential life science partner for data-driven answers in rare and neurodegenerative diseases, today announced that it has been recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research as a qualified organization to support partners conducting R&D projects in France. Accordingly, it has received accreditation under the French R&D tax credit initiative ('Crédit d'Impôt Recherche', CIR) for a three-year period.

The CIR initiative enables eligible research-based companies, who are subject to corporate tax in France, to claim tax relief on 30% of all costs (up to €100 million) incurred in R&D activities outsourced to CENTOGENE.

Prof. Peter Bauer, Chief Medical & Genomic Officer at CENTOGENE, stated, “'We are excited to receive this accreditation as it recognizes our advanced research capabilities that we support our customers with. By lowering overall R&D costs, we will be able to support our current and future partners in generating novel insights and delivering data-driven, life-changing answers to rare and neurodegenerative disease patients.”
