The government wants to help UK business grow by enabling you to invest into innovation through research and development refunds.

How does Research & Development tax credits work? 

If your company is spending money developing new products, processes or services; or enhancing existing ones, you are eligible for R&D tax relief.

If you’re spending money on your innovation, you can make an R&D tax credit claim to receive either a cash payment and/or Corporation Tax reduction.

R&D can be redeemed in every single sector. And if you’re making a claim for the first time, you can typically claim R&D tax relief for your last two completed accounting periods.
