R&D tax relief case studies – how we help clients save tax

8 November 2019 Scott Burkinshaw Radius - R&D Tax Relief & Patent Box, Business Taxes

Our Radius team have helped hundreds of innovative businesses from a wide spectrum of sectors and industries, obtain millions of pounds of tax savings via generous government backed Research and Development (R&D) tax relief.

Providing an incentive to innovate via the tax system, the reliefs rewards innovative companies that undertake R&D as they seek to make an ‘appreciable’ improvement in science or technology.  The relief is generous - a SME incurring £100,000 of costs on qualifying R&D activity could save around £25,000 in Corporation Tax. Cash repayments are also available to loss making companies.

Recent examples include the following R&D tax savings for clients;
