Research and Development Tax Credits

R&D tax credits are a tax relief designed to encourage greater R&D spending, leading in turn to greater investment in innovation.

R&D Tax Relief is a valuable government tax initiative set up in 2000 to reward UK companies that spend time and money on research and development in to order to develop new products, processes, materials, devices or services; or enhancing existing ones within their industry sector.

By claiming R&D Tax Relief we can help you reduce or clear the amount of corporation tax paid, or receive cash credits if you have not paid corporation tax.
