If your company is in the manufacturing or engineering industry and you've recently introduced new or improved products or manufacturing processes then there is a strong chance that you could benefit from an R&D Tax Credit claim.
The R&D Tax Relief incentive is designed to encourage innovation and increase spending on R&D activities for companies operating in the UK. It’s one of the government’s top incentives for encouraging investment in research and development and allows up to 33.35% of a company’s R&D spend to be recovered as a cash repayment.
Common examples of product and process development projects that may qualify for R&D tax relief include:
In terms of qualifying tasks, the following activities would be considered eligible for R&D tax credits:
In addition, certain indirect support activities may qualify for R&D tax relief, such as:
You can claim relief on costs that have been expensed through the Profit & Loss account and in certain circumstances you can also claim capitalised expenditure (providing that the assets purchased have been classified as Intangible Assets). The main areas of costs that can be claimed are:
It is not uncommon for an R&D team to consist of many individuals from different parts of the business. Your R&D project team may include the R&D Manager, a Lead Developer, Engineers, Project Co-ordinators, Quality Control and Testing specialists, and Cost Accountants, as well as members of the senior management team.
By profiting from our specialist knowledge and experience, you can be sure of maximising your R&D tax relief claim. As a rule, Myriad Associates submit R&D tax relief claims that are up to three times higher than in-house prepared claims or those filed by generalist accountants.
