What Are R&D Tax Credits?
Research and Development (R&D) tax credits are a government incentive in the UK designed to encourage businesses to invest in innovation. These tax credits allow companies to claim back a percentage of their R&D expenditure in the form of a reduction in their corporation tax bill.
The amount of the credit varies depending on the size of the company and the nature of the R&D project. R&D tax credits can be claimed by companies of all sizes, in any sector, as long as the work they are undertaking is compliant with the BEIS Guidelines, RDI Solutions’ In-House compliance team are here to identify whether these projects are in correlation with the BEIS Guidelines.

The UK government has instituted R&D Tax Credits as a way to stimulate innovation among businesses. By offering these credits, the government aims to encourage companies to embark on projects that will promote innovation within their sector contributing to economic growth.
The UK’s R&D Tax Credit system incentivises companies by recognising the costs associated with their R&D efforts. These costs may include staff expenses, consumed materials, sub-contractor costs, software, and other relevant outlays. The credit amount a company can claim is determined as a proportion of their total R&D expenditure for the year. SMEs can receive a more favourable credit rate of 130%, meaning they can claim back £130 in tax credits for every £100 spent on R&D. For larger companies, the credit rate is lower at 11%.
Claims for R&D Tax Credits are submitted through the company’s corporation tax return and must be backed by documented evidence of R&D expenditure, such as invoices and contracts. In addition, companies can claim credits for subcontracted R&D and for certain R&D spending on software.
