Enterprise series: R&D – leveraging valuable tax relief to fund business growth

2 October 2020 / Insight posted in Enterprise series, Entrepreneurial

The R&D tax relief scheme is a generous incentive to support innovation in British businesses. The effects of the pandemic has made this relief even more important as it brings businesses much needed cash at a critical time. While many companies are already taking advantage of the available schemes, there are still some missing out on this relief. In this webinar, we explained what R&D means for tax purposes; what type of company can claim the relief; what qualifies as R&D activities; and what can actually be claimed.

The challenges created by COVID-19 impacted on R&D for tax purposes, specifically the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS – Furlough). Our webinar also highlighted the important steps companies need to take to ensure their claims remain valid.

As usual, our regular panel were on hand; Tim Stovold, our Head of Tax, provided a brief tax update following the Chancellor’s Winter Statement. Click here to view Tim’s slides and view our video summarising the Chancellor’s Winter Economy Plan.
