Free R&D guides

We all know that the UK’s tax system is complicated and HMRC seems to have the monopoly on understanding ‘tax speak’. It has been repeatedly proven that the up-side to taxation rules, reliefs and rebates, are under used. Unacceptably, a large proportion of this due to a combination of lack of awareness, complexity of the regulations and a lack of time to invest in pursuing any kind of claim.

This is particularly true of Research and Development Tax Credits, only 10% of eligible companies currently claim. Both HMRC and tax professionals have a duty to realign this imbalance by providing accessible, relevant education for all taxpayers. As tax specialists, we take our role in enabling taxpayers very seriously. Our free guides contain expert information, simply explained, for our clients to educate themselves.

You can use our R&D tax glossary to get quick descriptions of the most commonly used terms relating to the research and development tax credit relief scheme.

What you will learn

Our free guides contain the basic information you need to decide if a particular tax credit or grant is relevant to your business.

This includes guides for:

  • Research and Development Tax Credits; including eligibility and qualifying costs
  • Patent Box; incentives to commercialise your patents
  • Video Games Tax Relief; including what types of games are applicable
  • EU Business Innovation Funding; Horizon 2020 funding

They are written in plain English, with explanations of any necessary terminology as you go along. The information is accurate and regularly updated in line with any changes to regulations.
