Research and Development (R&D) tax relief and tax credits are amongst the most under-claimed tax incentives currently available. Many people often believe that unless a scientist is employed by the company, then R&D is not taking place. This is not the case, if you are undertaking the development of new or appreciably improved products and/or processes, and there is a degree of technical risk, you could be entitled to claim significant amounts of cash.

R&D tax relief can be claimed whether your company is making a profit or a loss.  Retrospective claims can also be made for the past two accounting periods, this can often result in a significant repayment of corporation tax, or if a company is loss making, a claim for R&D tax credits. It is therefore important to discover if a claim can be made as soon as possible, so as not to miss out on any time limits.

The process is perceived as challenging; our experienced team use tried and tested methods to submit the necessary paperwork in an HMRC friendly format. Our tailored approach combined with our expertise ensures seamless liaison with the tax authorities.

Our expert team will ensure the best advice is given relating to this niche area of opportunity. A short telephone conversation with one of our specialists will be able to definitively establish whether or not you could benefit from submitting a claim.

If you are unsure at this stage, a telephone conversation with one of our advisers will be able to definitively establish whether or not a claim can be made. Find out today whether you are eligible for R&D tax relief and call Natalia Shaw us on114 236 4457 or email n.shaw@abbeytax.co.uk

Patent Box – Make every component count

From time to time a change occurs that significantly shifts our reference points. The patent box moves patent rights from simply being an overhead to a potentially significant reducer of corporation tax liability. The reduced rate is 10% which will be phased in gradually over a five year period applying in full from 1 April 2017.

The 10% rate of corporation tax is applicable to products and services that incorporate patented inventions as long as the company owns or has an exclusive licence under the patent and meets certain development criteria.

Take advantage of this wide ranging opportunity.
If a company does not already hold a patent on its products and processes and they wish to benefit from a headline 10% corporation tax rate, we can seamlessly apply for a patent to the UK Intellectual Property Office before securing maximum patent box tax relief.

If you own intellectual property, you should consider whether the patent box makes it worth getting a patent to be able to claim the tax relief.
