What are R&D Tax Credits?

R&D tax credits are a UK government incentive designed to encourage companies to invest in innovation. They provide a valuable source of cash for businesses to invest in advancing technology or science through research and development activities. You can reduce your tax bill, or get a cash repayment for your company’s investments in technological or scientific advancements through R&D.

Updated R&D Tax Credit Rates and How We Can Help

From 1 April 2023, the additional tax relief for SMEs engaging in R&D has been adjusted to 86%. For loss-making companies, the standard SME credit rate is 10%. However, R&D intensive businesses (those spending at least 40% of total expenditure on R&D) can benefit from a higher rate of 14.5%. Our services ensure you fully leverage these updated rates.

Identifying Qualifying Expenditures

We assist in accurately identifying and documenting qualifying costs like staff expenses, subcontracted R&D costs, materials, utilities, and specific software to enhance the value of your claim.
