Making claims for tax credits from HMRC

According to HMRC’s report, “the ‘Manufacturing’, ‘Professional, Scientific and Technical’, and Information and Communication sectors continued to have the greatest volume of claims for tax credits from HMRC, making up a total of 71% of claims and 75% of the total amount claimed in any tax year.”

“Mark Tighe, CEO of Tax Relief Specialists for Catax, pointed out that the “Government is aware that Britain has a global reputation for innovation and so is actively trying to encourage firms of all sizes to invest in R&D.”

Caroline Hunt, Director at National Audit, Tax, Advisory and Risk Firm for Crowe UK, said: “Given that the majority of those companies using R&D tax credits are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), the uptake in the relief used could encourage many innovative businesses to grow and expand and reach their full potential.”

For 2016-17, 39,960 R&D tax credit claims were made. 34,060 of these are in the SME R&D scheme, and yet there are still more claims to come as submissions remain open.” (Accountancy Age, 2018)
