What is it?

Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits are a Government-led scheme set up in the year 2000, designed to reward businesses investing in innovation. R&D Tax Credits offer financial aid to eligible businesses to further support their research and development, hire new employees and ultimately grow their business.

If you are designing, developing, or improving a product or service, or solving a problem with no existing solution then you could be eligible to claim. The scheme works by reimbursing a percentage of your development expenditure. Your relief can be delivered as a refund, a reduction on your tax corporation bill, or a cash lump sum.
