Austria in the EU - the advantages

As a result, the fundamental freedoms enjoyed by people in the EU also extend to Austrians. This entails the freedom of movement for all workers and thus the free choice of employment, right of establishment and freedom to provide services, and the free movement of capital and goods. In return, Austria is obliged to adopt EU regulations.

Ongoing EU enlargement has had a positive impact on Austria’s economic growth. Forecasts conclude that Austria’s annual GDP increase is 0.15% higher than it would have been only with an EU of 15 member states (EU-15).

The bottom line is that per capita economic growth, employment and GDP of the Alpine Republic is above the average of the countries in the eurozone.

Details can be found in the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber (PDF).

How Great Britain’s decision to exit the EU (Brexit) will affect Austria or trade, tourism and the labor market is still unclear and remains to be seen in the coming years.

The new research allowance in Germany – in competition with the Austrian research tax credit?

Companies carrying out research and development in Austria have the possibility to apply for research funding, namely the so-called research tax credit. In an international comparison, the Austrian research tax credit is a recipe for success and is designed to showcase and enhance the attractiveness of Austria as a research location. The successive increase in the research tax credit from the original level of three percent in 2002 to 14 percent at present has made a massive contribution to this success.
