R&D Tax Credits stands for Research and Development. It is a government incentive that was introduced in 2000 by the government, to encourage companies to invest in Research and Development to stay competitive on the market. 

It allows companies to reduce their tax bill or claim payable cash credits that should be re-invested into Research and Development.

  1. By the HMRC definition, Research and Development activities that qualify must work towards the advancement of science or technology.
  2. This includes, but is not limited to: utilising technology, improving existing products, software advancement/development, integrating existing components in brand new solutions.

This depends on multiple factors. 

If you are claiming under the SME incentive, then you are eligible to claim anywhere between 15% and 33% for your qualifying costs. This is determined by factors such as turnover and staff count.

If you are a large company, then you will qualify under the RDEC scheme, and you’ll be able to claim 13% of your qualifying expenditure. This benefit will be in the form of tax credits. 

In theory, HMRC will process your Research and Development Tax Credits claim within 28 working days. However, this can vary based on peak periods, workloads and resource availability. 

If you decide to use Counting King for your Research and Development Tax Credits claim, we will submit all documentation to HMRC within 2 weeks of receiving all relevant information from you. 

You can claim Research and Development Tax Credits for up to 2 years after the accounting period has ended for the time it is associated with.
