Take Advantage of a Little known Tax Rebates

R&D Tax Credits apply to businesses that are liable for Corporation Tax. They can help to reduce a corporation tax bill or can be claimed as a cash sum paid back to a company by HM Revenue & Customs, due to an overpayment of tax. Types of qualifying R&D expenditure are typically staff costs, software, utility bills, and any subcontracted work and materials. These R&D costs can be accelerated up to 230%.

Do I Qualify?

If you own a limited company that has been trading for more than 12 months and has developed new, or improved existing products, processes, systems, services, devices or materials, then there is a significant chance you will be eligible to claim for Research and Development Tax Credits. Irrespective of whether your company is currently making a profit or operating at a loss, a claim could still be possible. If you are still unsure whether you would be eligible for a claim or would like to discuss in more detail how this relates to your business, please arrange a consultation with me.

What can I claim for?

Typical claim items include staff costs, consumables, utilities, travel costs and sub-contraction costs. The company I work with are a specialist R&D firm, they have a detailed understanding of Research & Development practice and legislation and will conduct a detailed audit of your business to ensure that every opportunity for Research & Development tax relief is identified.

What could it be worth?

The amount of tax relief available will depend on the amount of money being spent by the business, and the profitability of the business when the work took place. The average claim size is in excess of £42,000, so we are not talking small change. In some cases, the relief can extend to around a 30% return on the investment undertaken by a business in Research & Development. The tax relief will typically take the form of a cash rebate from overpaid tax in year 1 and then reductions to your tax liability moving forward.

Are there any additional costs?

There are no up-front costs, and should we fail to identify a claim then we will not charge you a fee at all. In other words, we operate on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis. Also, we do not charge for submission fees so there will be no surprises when it comes to your claim being filed with HM Revenue and Customs. We also offer all clients 6-year report protection as part of our service.

Are you a UK taxpayer?

If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to both of these questions then we’ll almost certainly be able to secure you a significant tax benefit because of unclaimed capital allowances. To find out more about capital allowances, go to the commercial property – capital tax reclaims page of this website.
