Claim Your R&D Tax Credits

Are you eligible? R&D covers more sectors and activity than you think.

RD-tax-creditsOnly 10% of qualifying companies have participated in HMRC’s R&D Tax Credit scheme.

That’s means that 90% of you have not taken advantage of credits worth a staggering 225% of qualifying R&D expenditure.

Think about this way.

If you spent £100, 000 on qualifying R&D costs then this scheme means you can deduct £225,000 when calculating P&L. There is also an opportunity to credit a further £125 against taxable profits for every £100 spent on qualifying activities.

There are two key points that you may want to consider:

  • The scheme is not targeted on technical companies. Any business making advancements through science or technology can qualify.
  • R&D tax credits cover activities such as improvements to existing products or developing new business process.You can claim for a wide range of expenditure including; staff costs, materials, software and utilities.
