HMRC provide a number of financial reliefs or incentives to encourage businesses to invest in innovation. These include:
- Research & Development (R&D) Tax Reliefs or credits and R&D allowances (RDA)
- Patent Box
- Innovation and growth grants
- Intellectual property and creative sector
R&D Tax Reliefs provide tax deduction for smaller and medium sized businesses (SMEs) under the SME scheme, or a Research and Development Expenditure Credit (RDEC) for large companies qualifying R&D expenditure. Often these reliefs are also collectively referred as R&D tax credits. The SME scheme, delivers approximately 33% of qualifying expenditure as refundable tax credits whilst the RDEC delivers 10.5% of qualifying expenditure as refundable tax credits.
