What are R&D Tax Credits

If you are an innovative business you can get cash back from HMRC thanks to R&D Tax Credits.

R&D Tax Reliefs are a scheme put in place by the UK Government which allows SMEs to reclaim up to 33% of the amount they’ve spent on Research and Development – even if you make a loss.

The average SME claim in the UK is £45k.


  • <500 Employees and <$100M Turnover


  • <$86M Assets

What Qualifies as R&D Activity

You need to prove to HMRC that your project achieved a technical or scientific advance by overcoming an uncertainty that other professionals in the field could not easily work out.

HMRC’s guidelines include a very wide range of technical advancements.
Receiving grants can limit the amount of R&D credit you receive and your eligibility for the SME scheme.
