What are R&D tax credits? 

Research and Development (R&D) tax credits are a government incentive designed to reward companies for investing in innovation. In short, any project that seeks an advancement in technology or improves an existing process, service or product will qualify for R&D. The project doesn’t even necessarily need to be successful for you to claim tax credits.

Valuable cash injection for businesses

Especially with the uncertainty and challenging times in recent years, many businesses are looking to update or diversify their products and services. In doing this, you will qualify for a cash injection in the form of R&D tax credits. This can be used to refuel growth, hire new staff and re-invest in the innovation of your products and services, and once again be rewarded for your innovations with R&D tax credits.

R&D can transform your business by refuelling growth.
