R&D Tax Credits are a tax relief incentive from the UK government to encourage companies to invest in Research & Development (R&D). Successful claims reduce your tax bill or pay you cash as a proportion of your R&D expenditure.
If your company has worked on a project that includes in-house development (in software or hardware for instance) rather than buying off-the-shelf in the past 2 years, it's quite likely you have had to conduct some R&D.
Use our quick eligibility checker, or simply have a chat with us to find out if you qualify.
If your company is making a taxable loss, HMRC pays up to £33.33 for every £100 you spend on R&D claims. If your company is making taxable profits, HMRC gives you up to £43.70 off your corporation tax bill for every £100 spent on R&D - of which £24.70 of the deduction in your tax bill is from R&D relief. The average claim for SMEs nationally is £53,876.
A claim involves putting a report together explaining the qualifying R&D alongside figures showing a breakdown of expenditure, and then submitting this to HMRC with your tax return.
The project must qualify, and the costs must be within HMRC rules - HMRC has pages of documentation on their website.
