Are you trying to make improvements to your existing products or processes?

If so your company could benefit from very generous tax savings or cash credits from HMRC.

Research and Development (R&D) tax credits have been around since 2000 with the number of claims made increasing significantly over recent years.

However, many eligible companies are still missing out.

R&D doesn’t just apply to scientific or engineering sectors.

At Garbutt + Elliott, we have made claims in a variety of sectors including, but not limited to food and drink; manufacturing; construction, finance, farming and creative and digital.

R&D tax reliefs could be available to you, regardless of the industry or sector you work in and missing out on them could be costing you money.

• Have you made (or attempted to make) significant improvements to an existing product or production process e.g. improving efficiency, reducing waste?

• Have you performed any bespoke design or engineering services for third parties?

• Have you created a unique piece of software for your business or a third party?

There is no need for the project to be successful to make a claim.

What next?

If you think your company is undertaking R&D, or you simply want to find out more, please get in touch at and our R&D tax specialists would be happy to discuss this with you.

Just this year we have helped our clients claim more than £2 million and HMRC have never rejected one of our claims.
