Research and Development tax relief
Have you engaged in any new projects in your business lately? If you have, you may be eligible to receive Research and Development (R&D) tax relief.
What is Research and Development tax relief?
In 2000 the government introduced this scheme to encourage scientific and technological innovation within Ireland small and medium-sized businesses.
If eligible for the scheme, your tax bill may be reduced, or you could receive a payable tax credit. Either way, receiving tax relief is a great way to fund your next project.
How do you know if you are eligible to receive tax relief?
Your business is probably conducting research and development in some form but what you may not realise is that R&D tax credits apply to a wide range of projects. If you are unsure if your project qualifies, please get in touch, it’s worth a phone call and it could result in an unexpected cash boost for your company.
