Introducing our latest partner, R&D Experts Taxar Innovation Partners

We’ve been collaborating with Taxar Partners to understand how best to support our clients’ growing interest in Research and Development (R&D), as they innovate.

What is R&D?

R&D can encompass a wide range of activities, including pursuing something new, or previously unachieved, refining existing products or services beyond previously accomplished, or even fundamental scientific research. Essentially, any operational problem-solving activity that aims to generate new knowledge or translate ideas into practical applications can be classified as R&D.

Depending on the business environment, and intentions of the business, R&D can vary from business to business. The business strategy, innovation challenges, and even the process applied to the activity can significantly affect the positioning and outcome of the R&D approach.

What is R&D tax relief, why is it important and are you eligible?

R&D tax relief, also known as tax credits, is a government initiative designed to reward UK businesses that invest in innovation. Qualifying UK Businesses can mitigate the cost of their investment by claiming corporation tax relief on their R&D projects.

If you’re spending money on developing new products, processes, services, or enhancing existing ones, related expenditures could qualify for R&D tax relief. Designed to offer opportunities to invest in resources that facilitate advancements; it can come as either a cash payment or a reduction in Corporation Tax.

But what’s really important to understand is how an innovation and R&D strategy can sustainably leverage opportunities and manage risk within your business. A forecasting tool that can meaningfully and consistently be resilient against changing market conditions.

Therefore, it is recommended that once a business secures tax relief, they should reinvest the funds into further innovation within the business. This approach ensures continuous improvement and tends to increase the value of R&D claims as the business expands.

Are you eligible? It is worth speaking to us and Taxar Partners as the experts that can evaluate any claim. R&D occurs across virtually every sector in the UK, so there’s a strong likelihood that your business activities could be eligible.

When we received our R&D tax credit, the value far exceeded our initial expectations. Being able to reinvest the money back into our business has really helped us work towards our objectives and invest in further R&D projects.
