Research & Development claims
If your company carries out any research & development work as part of its ongoing trade, enhanced tax relief or credits may be available. Despite a steady increase in R&D claims in recent years, still too many businesses are overlooking this valuable tax relief which is worth an extra 130% of qualifying costs for profit-making SME entities or 14.5% tax credits if loss-making. R&D is carried out across all types of business and a successful claim needs to demonstrate how a project overcame an uncertainty and sought an advance in science & technology. We’ve successfully made claims for clients in areas such as aeroplane lighting, reedbed installation, computer software and various engineering scenarios. The project doesn’t even have to succeed in order to claim this generous tax relief.
