R&D (Research and Development) Tax Credit Relief
There are three separate R&D schemes in the UK – Small & Medium Enterprise scheme (SME), the large Company Scheme and Vaccine Research Relief (VRR). In addition to these schemes, R&D Capital Allowances are also available for qualifying Capital Expenditure that is recorded through the balance sheet. Despite the significant benefits available, many accountants are still not claiming the relief available, which means that many companies are still missing out.
