Are we eligible for R&D tax credits?

The criteria for making an R&D tax credit claim

We can give you a definite answer through a brief eligibility consultation that we carry out by phone. Please contact us to arrange this. However you can get an indication of whether you qualify by visiting our R&D claims calculator or by reviewing our quick guide found below.

A quick guide to R&D tax credit eligibility

  • Has your company implemented a project where the outcome was not certain because of technical constraints?

  • Do you employ scientists, engineers, architects, software developers or technicians?

  • Have you developed a new or significantly improved product, service or process?

  • Have you developed any software in-house?

  • Are you a Small or Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) that has subcontracted out any of the above?


If the answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, and your company pays UK Corporation Tax then it is likely that you are eligible to claim R&D tax relief. Visit our claims calculator or contact us to arrange a brief eligibility consultation.
