R&D Tax Credits

Research and Development (R&D) tax relief applies to companies who have incurred costs when developing new products and practices.

The tax relief is a focal point of the government’s strategy to encourage innovation and business development across the UK. A common misconception with R&D tax relief is that it only applies to large, multinational corporations, at UNW we have successfully worked on the claims of firms of varying sizes and turnovers.

We have a deep knowledge of the relevant legislation and act for numerous clients in explaining the legislation and identifying the qualifying projects/R&D that has been undertaken. We then ensure that the R&D claim is processed, often alongside the company’s tax return for the year, to ensure that the benefit of any R&D claim is obtained at the earliest opportunity.
