The first thing most business owners associate with growth is to increase sales to new customers. But this may not be your only option. Have you considered:

  • Offering new products or services to existing customers?
  • Improving existing products or services through research and development?
  • Broadening your customer base by selling online?
  • Exporting your products or services to new markets?
  • Utilising crowdfunding to build your brand and strengthen loyalty?

R&D Tax Credits

You’d be forgiven to think that there is no such thing as a free lunch. That is, unless the government has its fingers in the pie!

The R&D tax relief programme scheme was introduced in the early 2000s to support innovative businesses by providing them with a tax relief of up to 33%. The UK government approves on average of around £2.5bn tax refunds per year with the average amount claimed by SME’s being £35k.

The program is a recognition by Government that R&D expenditures can be high and that it can take years for a product to be market ready. With around 20,000 claims made every year the UK has one of the most successful R&D tax relief programmes in the world yet very few business owners are aware of the scheme.
