Is your team always thinking about how to make a product or process faster, cheaper, stronger, more scalable, etc? Do you explore anything and everything to try and problem solve? It is highly likely that these activities qualify for R&D Tax Relief.

​The term ‘R&D’ implies exotic, hi-tech, laboratory-based work. However, the R&D Tax Relief Scheme definition is much broader, and definitely covers those head-scratching moments when your team is faced with a problem.

Our session helps to de-mystify the process of capturing development activity, and how to structure various R&D Reliefs to create a virtuous cycle of funding, and how to future-proof claims against changes on the horizon.

  • R&D is the most generous tax relief there is for SME’s

  • Most businesses are doing it to some extent… it doesn’t need the people in white coats to be researching for you to be doing R&D…. 

  • Are you changing a product or a process? Are you overcoming a problem…. It’s probably R&D.

  • The R&D Scheme is a tax-free reward for the ‘investment’ of the costs of undertaking development.

  • Whilst there are changes on the horizon to tighten the scheme against spurious claims, our process is tested and proven to safely maximise claim value for reduces risks.

  • The R&D Schemes are here to stay, they form a key part of the UK industrial Strategy.
