The increase in support in 2013-14 was mostly driven by a higher number of SME claims, with the total value of SME claims rising to an all-time high of £800m in corporation tax reductions and tax credit payments. One reason is thought to be the removal on 1st April 2012 of the rule limiting payable R&D tax credits to the amount of an SME’s total payroll/PAYE tax liability, as well as...
In his Autumn Statement on 3rd December 2014 the UK Chancellor announced a number of changes to the Research and Development tax relief/credit schemes. The changes relate to both the large company (RDEC) scheme and the SME (Small and Medium Enterprise) R&D tax credit scheme. The good news is that the changes are generally very positive with the rates of relief increased for both schemes...
There is a group of five Corporation Tax reliefs for creative industries including new tax relief schemes for the animation, high-end television and video games industries.

Now you might think that you don’t make advances in science or technology. But the advance may be a new or significantly improved...
I have many satisfied clients that have claimed back tens of thousands of pounds in Research and Development Tax Relief and Tax Credit, yet it is the many that don’t take that step that I am concerned with here. Why would a company that qualifies for R&D tax relief not make a claim? If you read this headline would you be ever so slightly interested? “MD’s – find out how to earn £40,000...
One of the common misunderstandings, that I see all the time, is the assumption that because a company is doing development but no real research they don’t qualify for research and development tax credit. This simply is not the case; it is the development aspect of a company’s activities that is often where the R&D qualifying costs are. Plastics example Water bottle production...
