Grants & Tax Relief

Research & Development Grants are available for technically innovative products & processes:

Research and Development (R&D) tax credits allow companies to deduct up to 150% of R&D expenditure for tax purposes. In some cases this tax relief may be surrendered for cash, see R&D Tax Credits.

Our experience is that applying for R&D tax credits is an extremely complex process, even with the help of an accountant. However GovGrant specialise in this area & operate on a "no tax credit, no fee" basis, so we would suggest making them your first port of call.
