    Frequently asked questions

    Can my business claim R&D tax relief?
    If your business is a limited company and has spent money on R&D in the last 2 years – you’ll be able to benefit from R&D tax credits.
    How are my R&D tax credits calculated?
    R&D tax credits work by enhancing your companies R&D expenditure by 130%. This enhancement can reduce your corporation tax bill. Or if you’re loss making – you can surrender your losses for a Payable Tax Credit. This will allow your company to recover between 25% and 33% of its R&D expenditure.
    What work qualifies as R&D?
    Any work where a company has made an advance in knowledge in their field is likely to qualify as R&D. Even if it is only a small advance, by changing a product, or testing a new process.
    How long will a claim take?
    We could submit your claim to HMRC in just a few weeks of our first discussion. Once your claims submitted – HMRC should pay you the benefit within 4 weeks. That means you could be re-investing in your business in less than 2 months!
