R&D Tax Reliefs for Start-Ups and Small Businesses

Larger companies are generally more familiar with R&D Tax Reliefs – but the benefits they have for smaller businesses or start-ups can be instrumental in buoying that organisation’s cash flow. That’s because, when it comes to small organisations, for every £1 you spend, you can claim up to 33p back. We know that when you’re launching a start-up or running a small business, money can be tight. So if you’re eligible for R&D Tax Reliefs, investing £100 is the equivalent of spending only £67, leaving you with extra funds to put towards getting your business off the ground.

Claiming R&D Tax Reliefs doesn’t mean you have to be in constant contact with HMRC, either. If you’re a new business – or you’ve never claimed before – talk to your consultant about applying through the Advanced Assurance scheme. Once accepted, you’ll be guaranteed to receive tax reliefs for three years without enquiry from HMRC.

The key thing to remember about R&D Tax Relief is this: if you’re eligible, HMRC sends you money – and you get to keep it. It can be as simple as that.
