Research and Development (R&D) Tax Incentives

A simple equation: research and development + claim = cash from HMRC.

By making a research and development (R&D) claim, an innovative company can either reduce its tax bill or make a claim to receive cash from HMRC.
We achieve for our clients an average tax benefit of twice the national average (per HMRC statistics).

5 reasons why businesses should make R&D claims

  • For a profitable company: to reduce its corporation tax bill
  • For a loss-making company: to claim cash from HMRC
  • To improve the company’s cash flow
  • To make the company’s balance sheet look healthier
  • To increase the company’s reserves
