Labor productivity: Austria in the top ranks

According to the EU Commission, Austria ranks among the top performers in the EU in terms of labor productivity per employee. With a value of 116,8 % of the gross value added per person employed, the Austrian economy has once again demonstrated its high level of competitiveness, surpassing industrial powerhouses such as France, Germany, Italy and Great Britain.

There are major differences among the individual EU member states. Average labor productivity in Ireland’s manufacturing sector reaches a level of 189,2 % of the gross value added, whereas the comparable figure for Bulgaria is only close to 46,7%.

Austria ranks among the most prosperous countries in the EU. It not only offers a market boasting extensive purchasing power, but a corresponding consumer infrastructure. Despite its relatively small size and number of inhabitants, Austria is a profitable market for international companies.

According to Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities, Austria’s economic output is 27% higher than the EU average. It is ranked fourth in the EU with respect to its per capita gross domestic product (GDP), surpassed only by Luxembourg, Ireland and the Netherlands.

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.
