Our skills




Through the Research Tax Credit (CIR in french), France subsidizes research expenses eligible for up to 30% in metropolitan France and 50% in France overseas.

Innovation Tax


Only applicable to SMEs, the Innovation Tax Credit (CII in french) subsidizes 20% of the expenses necessary for the design and / or production of prototypes or pilot installations for a new product. Born in 2013, this device is particularly well suited to companies in the digital sector. It works as soon as a company puts on its market a new material or immaterial good presenting superior performance on a technical, ergonomic, functional or eco-design level.




The Young Innovative Company  status (JEI in french) favors the creation of companies carrying out R&D work by making them benefit

from a reduction in their tax and social security contributions.
The companies must be less than eight years old and have a minimum amount of research expenditure (15% of tax deductible expenses). They are independent and really new. The Young University Company status (JEU in french), cousin of the JEI status, concerns startups created by students, recent graduates, teachers or researchers who have established a link with a higher education institution. JEI and JEU are statutes aimed at helping businesses to get through the first years of their development.

Public subsidies

There are many public subsidies depending on the size, the development stage, the location, the activity of a company. Dix Septembre helps companies to select the most relevant devices and supports them in the management of their European (H2020), national (FUI, BPI, ANR, PSPC ...) or regional financing projects.

The financing then proposed is mainly in the form of public subsidies for priming, guarantee and innovation.
