Abstract

Este trabajo analiza la eficacia de los incentivos fiscales a la inversión en I+D en España. Para ello se utiliza una muestra de empresas manufactureras referida al período 1990 a 2001. Los resultados muestran que el crédito fiscal, y en menor medida las amortizaciones, son instrumentos adecuados para reducir el precio de la I+D. Sin embargo, la respuesta de la inversión a tales variaciones en precio es moderada ya que las elasticidades oscilan entre -0,98 y -1,01. Asimismo, cada unidad monetaria adicional de gasto fiscal genera entre 1,24 y 1,26 unidades monetarias de inversión bruta. Por último, los resultados indican que la relación entre activos fijos productivos e I+D es muy débil.
