R&D Tax Credits in Manufacturing
The R&D Tax Relief incentive is designed to encourage innovation and increase spending on Research & Development activities for companies operating in the UK. It’s one of the government’s top incentives for encouraging investment in R&D and allows up to 33.35% of a company’s R&D spend to be recovered as a cash repayment.
Manufacturing is one of the most important sectors in the UK, contributing 11% of the country’s GVA and employing more than 2.5 million people. Manufacturing is also responsible for 70% of R&D spend in the UK, as the sector constantly strives for further efficiency and innovation.
