R & D Tax Relief

R & D Tax Relief

Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit

If a company spends money on research and development activities, these activities may qualify for the R&D Tax Credit.

The credit is calculated at 25% of qualifying expenditure and is used to reduce a company’s Corporation Tax (CT). Where a company has offset current and previous years’ CT liabilities, it may apply for a credit payable in instalments.

To qualify for the R&D Tax Credit, a company must carry out research and development activities that meet the following conditions.

The research and development activity must:

  1. involve systemic, investigative or experimental activities
  2. be in the field of science or technology
  3. involve one or more of these categories of R&D:
    • basic research
    • applied research
    • experimental development
  4. seek to make scientific or technological advancement
  5. involve the resolution of scientific or technological uncertainty.

The credit has to be claimed within 12 months of the year end in which the qualifying R & D was undertaken
