In short, yes. The best thing to do is to figure out how much R&D you are doing, you should then be able to assign a proportion of your light, heat, water and power that was used for your R&D and amend your claim accordingly. 

One of the biggest portions of claims for the Research and Development tax incentive is circled around staff costs. Whether that might be people directly involved within the R&D or others who might be indirectly involved.

No, you do not need to create a new product to qualify for R&D Tax Credits. For example, if you tweaked a filing system which had an advancement, this could be claimed for the R&D incentive. Anytime you have attempted an advancement in the Admin and Support sector, whether this worked or not, could still have the potential to be a qualifying activity.fil

In 2020, there were only 3085 claims processed by HMRC for the Admin and Support sector, but on average you could receive £51,864 for your successful claim based on current statistics.

Where do we start? You can claim for:

  • New or improving platforms
  • Innovating new e-commerce 
  • A portion of your utilities bill

  • Improving secutiry

Yes! You are able to claim for unsuccessful projects as this falls under the ‘uncertainty’ you faced during the Research and Development you undertook.

Examples of uncertainty for R&D are;

  • Coming into an issue when attempting to enhance a security system and it didn’t go to plan
  • Managing environmental factors, decreasing your carbon footprint during your manufacturing process 
  • Adaptations and amendments in current products and/or services that didn’t go as anticipated and still needs to be amended
