Research & Development Tax Relief

The R&D tax credit scheme is an HMRC incentive created to inspire and reward limited companies for their innovation and development of their industry. This applies to Hospitality companies too!

R&D Tax Credits

R&D Tax Credits can be a vital source of extra income and if your claim is successful, processed and paid in up to 8 weeks.

Many businesses in Scotland and the hospitality sector, generally, are unaware that they are eligible for this funding, which can be claimed against spending on research and development in a wide range of areas. Article by Insider Publications Ltd.

R&D tax credits aren’t just for very high-tech enterprises conducting advanced research. Please do not hesitate to contact us right away for a 15 min discovery call  to see we can help you with your Hospitality R&D Claim.

A successful claim can mean your business receives, either a cash payment or a reduction in Corporation Tax. Less than 1% of all the R&D claims received by HMRC every year, are from the hospitality sector. Please consider activities focussed around process improvements, innovation and business progress
