RDEC Scheme | R&D tax relief explained

RDEC (research and development expenditure credit) is a credit against a company’s research and development costs designed to incentivise innovation in the UK. It offers large corporates a cash benefit of £1,053 for every £10,000 of qualifying expenditure, however it is also available to SMEs in certain cases.

In this article, we explain how the RDEC scheme works, what rate of relief is available, what expenditure qualifies for the relief and the evidence required for your claim. We also cover how large corporations and SMEs can make best use of the scheme and how we can help.
