Introduced by the UK Government in 2000, R&D tax relief is one of the most effective tax relief schemes available to both loss-making and profit-making companies. Innovative businesses undertaking R&D-related activity claim a generous corporation tax deduction or a cash refund from HMRC. Loss making companies can claim back up to 33% of qualifying expenditure i.e. 33p for every £1 spent. Profit making companies can claim back up to 24.7% of your qualifying expenditure.
