R&D Tax Credits Workshop

The R&D Tax Credits workshop was developed by HMRC to reward innovative companies for investing in R&D. Companies that develop new products, services or valuable enhancements are eligible for either a cash transfer or a reduction of their Corporation Tax. The scheme allows companies to claim back up to 33% of their R&D spending over two completed financial years.

In this workshop workshop you will learn how R&D tax credits can add essential funds to your business, what HMRC is looking for in a successful application, which expenses are eligible and how to maximise your claim. At the same time, you will learn how to manage future R&D tax credit income streams through factoring and how to access funds at a time that when your business can use them best.
