R&D Tax Credits

A successful R&D claim could generate a significant financial benefit

Getting R&D tax relief right

Research & Development (R&D) tax credits are a UK government initiative to reward business innovation and promote growth through generous tax incentives. A successful R&D claim could generate a significant financial benefit, leaving you with more to invest in taking your business to the next level.

However, many businesses like yours miss out because they simply don’t realise their activities qualify as Research and Development. Alternatively, if you are already making R&D claims, unless you have fully grasped the nuances of R&D tax legislation, you may be missing out on your full entitlement.

Am I eligible to make a claim for R&D tax relief?



Your business could qualify for R&D Tax Credits, and receive between 25-33% of its key expenditure back if:

  • Your business is a limited company and subject to either UK or ROI corporation tax
  • You have been actively working to overcome a difficult problem or challenge
  • The approach to solving this problem was uncertain to a competent individual in the field
  • The outcome of your work may lead to an advancement in knowledge or understanding

In short, if you have been attempting to make an appreciable improvement to a product, process or service, get in touch and let’s see if we can get you some benefit for your innovation.

What costs can I claim for?

Costs incurred on any qualifying Research & Development activities could qualify for a claim in the relevant tax year. You may claim for expenditure such as:

  • Employees' time
  • Sub-contractors
  • Materials and consumables
  • Travel expenses
  • Utility cost
