A South Wales farm has claimed a sum of £360,000 using the R&D Tax Credit scheme. The innovative dairy farm had been attempting to improve their herds and companies performance over the year. This included trialling different feed components to help alleviate issues with their herds' butterfat production. After a discussion with Zest R&D, they found that these feed trials qualified as Research and Development, so they were able to claim a farming R&D tax credit.
The farm claimed for two different Research and Development projects. Firstly - they claimed for the feed trials they conducted for their dairy herd. Secondly, they claimed for research they conducted into suitable bedding types for their herd. These two farming R&D Tax Credit projects resulted in a payable sum of £360,000 being made to them by HMRC.
