R&D Tax Relief: Making the most of it

23 May 2017

The Government continues to support innovative businesses by encouraging companies to apply for
R&D tax relief and increasing rates of relief.

R&D is broadly defined for these purposes as activities carried out that “seek an advance in science or technology, through the resolution of scientific or technological uncertainty”. The advance may be in the development of a product or a process and may include software developed internally.
It is a common misconception that only companies operating in certain sectors are eligible for this relief. We have worked with companies of all sectors and sizes to successfully claim the relief, including life sciences, manufacturing, marine, civil  engineering, aerospace and defence and software.
