These benefits are for businesses that are doing innovative work in the science and technology industry. So if your company is seeking to make advances in systems, processes, services or products, it may be eligible. Tax relief available varies on the size of your business. On the SME scheme companies can claim 130% enhanced tax relief, whereas large companies are limited to 30%. Regardless of the size of your business, it's still worthwhile.
But I don't do any research or development
Are you sure? Many businesses eligible for the tax breaks don't realise at first. Even if the process sounds too complex, or not worth the effort, if you enlist the help of a professional you'll be able to see the true benefits.
Essentially, Research and Development tax relief is free money. It's intended to help the nation's science and technology industries make quicker progress. You have nothing to lose in finding out if your company is eligible. Worst case scenario, nothing changes. If things go well, you could get tax relief on more than double what you actually spend. Even if you've already received a grant for research and development, you can still claim some tax relief form HMRC.
