R&D Tax Credits Explained

Following NDMA/Forrest Brown event briefings, several members have successfully obtained R&D tax credits.

Forrest Brown has published a helpful booklet which explains the process:

Many companies are surprised to discover that they qualify for a cash boost from R&D tax credits

For tax purposes, the government definition of R&D is purposefully broad. Whatever size or sector, if your company is taking a risk by attempting to ‘resolve scientific or
technological uncertainties’, then you may be carrying out qualifying activity. This could include:

  • Creating new products, processes or services
  • Changing or modifying existing products, processes or services

Another way to consider whether you have been doing R&D is to think if you are disrupting your sector, or are taking risk in the work you do. Are you doing something challenging? Could your project end in failure?
