R&D Tax Credit Relief

It pays to be innovative

We often come across clients who think that they don’t carry out R&D because they haven’t got Bunsen burners or PhDs. Sure those things can suggest that there could be innovation, but the reach of relief goes far wider than that.

We can help you to secure maximum value from R&D tax credit, if you:

  • Are a limited company in the UK that is subject to Corporation Tax.
  • Have carried out qualifying research and development activities.
  • Have spent money on these projects.

What are R&D tax credit?

Research and development (R&D) tax credit are a government incentive designed to reward UK companies for investing in innovation. They are a valuable source of cash for businesses to invest in accelerating their R&D, hiring new staff and ultimately growing. Rewarding innovation and fuelling growth, R&D tax credit have the power to transform your business.

Companies that spend money developing new products, processes or services; or enhancing existing ones, may be eligible for R&D tax relief. If you’re spending money on your qualifying activities, you can make an R&D tax credit claim to receive either a cash payment and/or Corporation Tax reduction. The scope for identifying R&D is huge – in fact, it exists in every single sector. And if you’re making a claim for the first time, you can typically claim R&D tax relief for your last two completed accounting periods.
