    claims within the Food & Drink Industry

    There are so many opportunities to claim research and development tax credits within the food sector. The food industry is easily worth trillions of pounds because there is always pressure to adapt foods to make them healthier, gluten-free, vegan, organic, etc. Needs like these can come from both food regulators and consumers, causing constraints on the innovators to improve the food.

    An example of this would be when you see products stating ‘New Recipe’ or ‘Now with 20% less sugar’ on supermarket shelves. This can be seen as a marketing technique, however, there will be truth behind it. It is likely that behind the scenes, there was a substantial amount of research & development into bettering the product – justifying the claims on the packaging.

    Get in touch today for a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our specialists to find out what activities your business conducts which may qualify you for R&D tax relief.

    R&D tax credits are a government incentive designed to encourage innovation across multiple industries. This is an opportunity for you to reduce your corporation tax bill or receive a refund from HMRC based on the number of working hours your business dedicates to Research & Development.

    SME’s can claim back a significant percentage of the costs associated with R&D. That’s up to 27p back for every £1 spent on qualifying R&D activities. To get an idea of how much you could be refunded, check out our handy online calculator.
