Are you claiming R&D tax credits?

Research and development (R&D) tax credits are a government incentive designed to reward UK companies investing in innovation.

R&D claims provide businesses with either a cash payment and/or corporation tax reduction. This means that they can be a valuable source of cash, helping them invest in accelerating their R&D work, funding new ventures, hiring new staff and ultimately growing.

The scope for qualifying R&D is wide and has been claimed in across industry sector. If you are making a claim for the first time, you can typically claim R&D tax relief for your last two completed accounting periods.

A few common misconceptions
about R&D tax claims…

Myth 1: ‘Making a claim is complicated and takes time’. We say: A typical R&D claim can be completed from start to finish in a matter of months and we handle everything as part of our service.

Myth 2: ‘We won’t qualify, it’s not like we’re doing rocket science’. We say: Many activities qualify and almost every company carries out some form of R&D, across each industry sector.

Myth 3: ‘Claims have to be large to be worth it’. We say: Would additional funds, usually in the thousands, help your business? There is no minimum claim and when we calculate all qualifying costs, it could add up.
