We’d all like some free cash, wouldn’t we? Well it’s not quite ‘free’, but the vast majority of businesses in the UK are missing out on claiming what’s rightly due to them in the form of Research and Development (R&D) tax credits. These are a valuable government tax relief that rewards UK companies for investing in innovation. Introduced into UK tax legislation at the turn of the millennium, their aim has been to encourage businesses to increase investment in innovative activities. R&D tax reliefs offer significant benefits for companies advancing science and technology.
