This paper takes manufacturing companies in Zhejiang region from 2016 to 2018 as sample companies, discusses the relationship between R&D investment and enterprise performance, and introduces the effectiveness of internal control as a regulating variable to study the relationship between internal regulation and R&D investment and enterprise performance. Empirical research finds that: R&D investment can indeed improve the performance of enterprises, but it has a certain lag; However, effective internal control can adjust the relationship between the two, and has played a role of "providing timely help" or even "icing on the cake" in the current investment period, that is to say, effective internal control can reduce the side effect of r&d investment on current enterprise performance, but can enhance the positive effect of subsequent periods on enterprise performance.
