R&D Tax Credits

The government is actively seeking to reward companies which invest in research and development by offering attractive tax incentives. However, despite the generous benefits on offer (including cash back from the government in certain instances) innovative companies are missing out on their entitlements.

With dedicated R&D Tax specialists, Abel & Mercer has helped many of our clients to access these benefits, saving them hundreds of thousands of pounds. We can help you identify your qualifying activities, quantify your qualifying expenditure and agree you claim with HMRC.

What are R&D tax credits?

Research and development tax credits are a government incentive designed to reward UK companies for investing in innovation. They are a valuable source of cash for businesses to reinvest back in their company to accelerate R&D, hire new staff and ultimately grow.

SME’s both loss making and profitable can claim back up to 33% of the amount they’ve spent on qualifying R&D. Larger companies can recieve up to 10% of their R&D refunded.

Money is paid as a corporation tax refund, or as a negative corporation tax, after the end of the financial year, tax free, and can be used for anything – including further research and development by hiring more developers, buying equipment, software or even paying out dividends.

Is my business eligible for R&D tax credits?

If you are a limited company incurring expense on developing new products, technology or processes, you may be eligible. It is not sector or technology specific, and companies across a broad range of industries are already successfully claiming. If you want to know if your company is elegible for research and development tax credit , contact our specialist R&D team today!
