How do I qualify for the R&D tax credit incentive?
Any advance in science or technology may count as R&D. Many companies may qualify for this tax incentive without realising it. We work with you to optimise your R&D tax credit claim and more importantly, we do most of the work, so that you don’t have to.
Employee costs can be claimed back, and this includes salary, Class 1 NI contributions, overtime and pension contributions – a significant amount for most businesses.
You can claim back up to 65% of your subcontractor and agency costs, providing those individuals have no connection to your business. If they are connected, you may claim 100% of costs.
Cost of materials and consumables used in your activities can be included, and a percentage of your utilities, including lighting, heating, electricity and water etc.
You can even include the cost of any computer software/licensing used specifically for your R&D activities, regardless of whether they are specialist or not.
