The JEDI status is granted to young innovative companies. Indeed, innovation is currently at the heart of the State Council’s priorities, especially in terms of new business development.
The JEDI status aims to simplify the administrative procedures for these companies in order to encourage their development. It seems that young and innovative companies will benefit from the facilitation of tax breaks. This basically means that new companies will no longer have to provide highly complex records when they wish to apply for tax-exempt status. To do so, they will simply have to fill out a form in the form of a questionnaire. The latter aims to put the finger on what makes the company innovative. It is important to note that this status does not entail any training rights.
To enjoy the JEDI status, the startup that wishes to do so must meet a few criteria. To begin with, it must be a young, innovative company, presented as a legal entity. Then, the following criteria are cumulative:
Only if all of these requirements are met can a company obtain JEDI status. She can then forward her file to the cantonal tax authorities. The latter will process the application for tax exemption.
