R&D Tax Credits

Whether you are an innovative SME or larger organisation that invests in new products, processes or services you may well be eligible for R&D tax relief. The UK Government has specifically created an incentive to reward companies like you for investing in innovation.

How Does the R&D Tax Credit Scheme Work?

The scheme currently allows profitable SME’s to claim upto 26% of your R&D expenditure as either a tax refund or a reduced tax liability. The percentage rises to 33.35% for SME’s that are yet to make a profit and comes in the form of a cash repayment. Similarly for larger organisations with over 500 staff the relief comes in the form of a Research and Development Expenditure Credit.

Many companies, and many accountants too, believe that R&D has to be highly technical in order to qualify for the tax relief.  Experience has taught us that this is simply not the case!

Qualifying expenditure can include many things including – Director and staff costs, subcontractor costs, prototypes, testing, clinical trials and bespoke technology.

If you think you may have an opportunity to make a claim let our experts help you assess the opportunity and develop your claim.
