We have had great success helping a wide variety of businesses claim R&D tax relief
What is it?
The R&D tax relief scheme is a government incentive designed to encourage innovation and increased investment on R&D activities by companies operating in the UK. Companies carrying out R&D activities may claim an enhanced tax deduction for the qualifying expenditure they incur.
Despite being a valuable cash incentive for businesses, many companies are unaware that their activities qualify for R&D and have missed claims for the enhanced tax relief.
Who can claim?
If your company carries out research and development then you may be eligible for R&D tax relief, which can significantly reduce your tax bill. Companies with no corporation tax liability may surrender losses to HMRC for a cash tax credit.
To claim R&D tax relief, you don’t need to be scientists in laboratories. A company that spends time and money trying to improve their products, services, processes or systems through a technological or scientific advance that would not be easily deductible by a competent professional in their field, is likely to be eligible.
The landscape for R&D claims is changing. Therefore, it has never been more imperative to seek professional, expert advice when considering making a claim.
