R&D Tax Credits
The Research and Development (R&D) Tax Relief Scheme is a Government initiative, created to reward and encourage UK companies to invest in innovation. In reward for the risk-taking companies can claim a Corporation Tax reduction or refund.
According to recent statistics published by HMRC, 2017-18 shows SME’s in the North East are missing out on R&D Claims more than other UK regions.
A qualifying project could create or significantly improve a process, material, device or product which increases knowledge or capability in a field of science or technology. There is a common misconception that qualifying activities are limited to pure research by technicians in laboratories; this is not the case.
Any kind of innovation may constitute qualifying activities. If the answer to any of the following questions is yes, then a claim may be possible:
- Have you automated previously manual processes?
- Have you modified manufacturing processes, maybe for specific customer requirements?
- Have you developed new products or upgraded/refined existing products?
- Have you devised bespoke software for a particular purpose?
- Do any of your technical staff undertake research/problem solving?
- Are you market leaders in your field?
- Have you created patents over any of your products?
The average claim is £28,500 but we have many customers receiving over £100,000 per year.
The Research and Development claims are made on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis
