Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits

R&D tax credits enable companies that spend money on developing new products, processes or services to receive a cash payment or tax deduction. The relief was implemented by the Government to help encourage UK-wide business innovation.

Research and Development Tax Credits – Do You Qualify?

Companies can claim cash repayments of up to 33 per cent of their qualifying R&D expenditure, which can provide a cash boost that is crucial for growth and financial stability.

R&D tax relief is not limited to intensive technical activity or the development of complex or completely new products.

Included among the areas of expenditure that qualify are:
Tax Relief

  • Creating processes and systems for use within a business
  • The development of a process or product already in existence, if methods are not common knowledge or if there is an aspect of technological uncertainty (such as mobile app development)
  • Improving existing products or processes in the marketplace, if technological uncertainty is an issue
  • Business activities that innovate and resolve technological uncertainty

At Bishops, we have the expertise to guide your company through claiming R&D Tax Credits, advising you on the activities that are eligible and how to maximise the financial benefit you receive.
