R&D tax credits made simple – what’s in it for you?R&D tax credits are a great way of raising money to help subsidise the cost of developing new products, materials, devices, processes or services. The cash benefits can run into tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds. You probably know at least one business that qualifies but does not realise it, or maybe your business qualifies? Either way you could benefit, so I’ve put together a special one to one Introduction to R&D Tax Credits, during which you will discover how R&D tax credits work and have an opportunity to explore what benefits this knowledge can unlock for you or your business.
