Research & Development Tax Credits


Research and Development tax credits reward UK companies for investing in innovation. They can be used to reduce an organisation’s tax bill. If the company and the project both meet the necessary conditions, the company can claim tax relief on revenue expenditure in the areas outlined.

How to claim

This tax relief can only be claimed if an organisation is liable for Corporation Tax.

Companies can claim for tax relief if a research and development project seeks to achieve an advance in overall knowledge or capability in a field of science or technology through the resolution of scientific or technological uncertainty.

The University’s support has resulted in raising the profile of The Play Doctors, boosting our credibility, and has given us the confidence to work with other larger organisations.

The University has been willing to go the extra mile and provide additional support when required; we’d like to thank everybody who’s been part of this journey.
