R&D Tax Credits
Rachel Marsdin (Associate Director of Taxation, Moore and Smalley) will be presenting on R&D Tax Credits amongst other things.
The definition of Research and Development ("R&D") for tax purposes is wider than most businesses realise and offers considerable opportunities to secure additional tax benefits. After all, the majority of companies carry out some form of R&D, even if they don't think of it strictly in those terms. The current definition covers both pure and applied research, as well as product development activities where there is an advance in science or technology. Many businesses could be wasting valuable tax relief opportunities by not making effective claims for R&D tax relief so if you'd like to find what tax relief you might be eligible for please do register for our event.
