R&D Tax Credits FAQs

What are R&D tax credits?

R&D tax credits are a type of tax relief offered by the UK government to support companies engaged in projects innovating the field of science and technology. They provide a reduction in corporation tax or a cash payment to eligible businesses.

What projects qualify for R&D tax relief?

To be eligible for R&D tax relief, the project must be aimed at making an advance in science or technology. It should seek to overcome scientific or technological uncertainties which relate to your company's trade. Please click here to access the definition of R&D for tax purposes.

What areas do not qualify for R&D tax relief?

Projects in the arts, humanities, and social sciences, including economics, do not qualify for R&D tax relief. Claims that are rarely eligible include those made by care homes, childcare providers, personal trainers, wholesalers and retailers, pubs and restaurants. The focus is on projects with a scientific or technological basis.

Furthermore, simply replicating existing products, processes, materials, or services won’t qualify as R&D.

How can I demonstrate scientific or technological uncertainty?

You need to show that there was uncertainty in achieving the desired advance and that professionals in the field could not easily solve it. This can be demonstrated through research, testing, analysis, and documenting the successes and failures encountered during the project. 

What types of R&D tax relief are available?

There are two main types of R&D tax relief: SME R&D tax relief and R&D expenditure credit (RDEC). SME R&D tax relief is available for small and medium-sized enterprises, while RDEC is for large companies or SMEs which were subsidised to perform R&D.

How do I claim R&D tax credits?

To claim R&D tax credits, you must include the relevant information in your Company Tax Return. It's important to follow the necessary steps outlined by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), which may include submitting claim notification forms and additional information forms.
