What are R&D Tax Credits

Who is benefitting
from R&D Tax Credits?

Life Science

Life science is an area that has seen a huge amount of investment over the last few years and that doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. Improvements to healthcare have come on leaps and bounds with the advent of new technology. But all of this investment needs cash behind it to support the future. The government has identified this as one of the key areas the UK leads the world and this is why it is supported with R&D tax credits.

Manufacturing

R&D is something that many manufacturing or engineering companies carry out on a regular basis.
