The impact of R&D in the UK’s road to recovery
Our experience is that many companies have not realised the full extent of the R&D tax credits available to them. Any UK company that is looking to develop new products or processes, or to improve its products or processes, may be entitled to claim this relief.
Our specialist Innovation Taxes team are experienced in helping companies to maximise their R&D tax credits.
We have helped all sizes of companies across a wide range of sectors, not just technology and research based companies.

In certain circumstances where your company is a subcontractor, or has received a grant or subsidy to help with the R&D, it may be either wholly under the Large company R&D scheme (irrespective of the size of the company) or it may be partly under the SME R&D scheme and partly under the Large company R&D scheme.
