R&D Tax Credits York: The Business Incentive Explained

There are still many Companies who feel their routine, day-to-day activities aren't eligible for a claim and are not benefitting from this relief.  It's now estimated that round 80% of businesses who could claim, haven't.

The Incentive and it's background

First introduced in the year 2000 by the labour Government, the R&D tax relief scheme was planned to encourage businesses to invest in developing new or improved products and services.  Since their inception in 2000, there has been over 250,000 successful claims.  A total of over £26.5 billion of R&D tax credit relief has now been claimed.

Many Companies haven't claimed due to a general lack of understanding as to what constitutes R&D.  The words 'Research and Development' often make people wrongly assume they need to be a dedicated research laboratory in order to claim. The reality however is that many Companies who could claim haven't. If your business is seeking to do something in a new and improved way, you might qualify.

Award-Winning R&D Tax Credit Claims 

"I was initially sceptical that we we're doing any R&D.  I had visions of needing to be a large scale pharma company and couldn't see where our work would qualify. Thankfully we were introduced to Chris at Hamilton Wood and after a brief discussion, we were able to pin-point areas that formed the basis of our claim.  Thank you!"

Ongoing support with complex R&D tax claims.

"Our industry had a 'spot check' by HMRC. Naturally, I was very worried.  I can't thank the team at Hamilton Wood & Co. enough.  They dealt with HMRC directly and  I must say I was impressed with the speed and efficiency that the matter was dealt with. Our claim was approved and we were delighted with the support from Chris at Hamilton Wood throughout.  I couldn't have done it on my own."

N.Burgess
Product Lead

Fast and efficient R&D claims process.

"As a business owner, I very rarely get a spare moment.  I was encouraged to talk to Simon at Hamilton Wood and Co. to see if the improvements to our back-office functions and processes might qualify.  After a quick conversation by phone I was assured that whilst not all my activities did qualify, that some of them did and we could move forward on them. I was involved for less than 2hrs over a 12 week period and got a playout in no time at all."

CAN CHARITIES CLAIM AND SOLE TRADERS CLAIM?

No. Charities, universities, sole traders nor partnerships are able to claim R&D Tax Credits. The business claiming must be a corporate, liable to UK corporation tax. This can include group structured companies and businesses with operations in other countries.

MY PROJECT FAILED, CAN I STILL CLAIM?

Potentially, yes.  While the overall success of the project is irrelevant in terms of making a claim, what does matter is that the project qualifies for this type of relief. If you are unsure if your project qualifies, call one of our team today and we will be able to help you.

MY COMPANY IS MAKING A LOSS, CAN I STILL CLAIM R&d?

For loss making Companies, the benefit of the scheme is even more generous which can be a big help when trying to grow your business.  For loss making companies, any eligible R&D tax sums can be surrendered that will trigger an almost immediate payment for your business.

WHICH OF MY PROJECTS QUALIFY FOR AN R&D TAX CLAIM?

It is important that each project is professionally assessed on its' own merits to see if there are recoverable expenditures. The project should be developing a new or appreciably improved process, or product, where the way forward wasn't certain.
