What is the R&D Tax Incentive?

The Research & Development (R&D) tax credit was designed by HMRC to encourage developments and increase spending on R&D activities for companies operating in the UK.

By processing a successful R&D tax credit claim, you will receive either a cash injection or a reduction in your corporation tax liability. This valuable relief can free up resources that can be invested back into your business to support further growth.

The R&D Tax Credit is a valuable tool for UK businesses looking to grow.

It provides financial relief which can free up resources so that businesses can invest in new products, services, or processes. This, in turn, can help businesses stay competitive and ahead of their competitors. Moreover, the R&D tax credit can help businesses build their reputation and brand.

A business that highlights their commitment to growth, can differentiate themselves from their competitors and position themselves as leaders in their industry. This can help to attract new customers, partners, and investors who are interested in working with innovative and forward-thinking companies.
