New R&D tax relief guidance available

For accounting periods beginning on or after 1 April 2024, a new merged scheme for research and development tax credit comes into force.

The new merged scheme replaces the old RDEC and small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) schemes.

The new scheme reduces the amount of benefit that would generally have been received under the old scheme.

Loss making R&D intensive SME companies can also benefit from additional support through Enhanced R&D Intensive Support (ERIS). Broadly speaking, if a company’s R&D expenditure amounts to at least 30% of its total expenditure then it may qualify as R&D intensive.

HMRC has published guidance on how to claim, but if you need any help with an R&D claim or wonder if your business could make a claim, please contact us at any time and we would be happy to help you.

Guidance on the merged scheme and ERIS can be found here:
