    London R&D tax credit experts

    Our R&D tax accountants in London can help with all queries relating to R&D tax relief. R&D tax credits can provide valuable funding for any company that is spending money developing new processes or products or improving or modifying current ones. This allows companies to claim back a proportion of these outgoings as tax credits, that can reduce your tax bill or increase taxable losses.

    If you are wondering if your company may qualify for R&D tax credits, your business will need to meet the following conditions:

    • You are a limited company in the UK subject to corporation tax
    • You have carried out qualifying research and development activities
    • You have spent money on R&D projects

    The scheme allows companies to claim back as much as 33 per cent of their R&D expenditure, with larger companies receiving 10 per cent of their R&D costs under the RDEC (research and development expenditure credit) scheme. Money is offered as a tax-free lump sum, or as a partial refund of Corporation Tax.
