Companies leaving money on the table
In 2010-2011 the Government provided approximately £340 million in funding of claims made under the R&D tax credit program to around 8,000 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
It is estimated that there was between £400 and £500 million that went unclaimed and that an additional 7,000 SMEs could have filed claims.
The companies that did not file claims were likely either not aware of the program, or are not aware of the types of activities that are eligible for funding.
Many large companies are not aware that from April 2013 a refundable Above The Line Credit could be available for years where the company is in a tax loss position.
A common misconception is the belief that the R&D tax credit program was created exclusively for the high-tech sector. R&D is not performed in laboratories only. It can happen in an office behind a computer or on the shop floor. more
