Research & Development Tax Relief

There’s money hiding in the work that you do and the money you get back could help fund your next project.

You would be surprised at what qualifies for Research & Development (R&D) tax relief. It’s not just about people in white lab coats. R&D tax relief is the government’s way of rewarding companies that are developing new, or improving existing products, processes, services, devices and materials or advancing the state of knowledge in their sector.

It’s well worth investigating, in some cases the tax relief itself could represent as much as 33% return on investment for the R&D project.

R&D tax legislation is complicated, but the team at Ryan are experts and will do all the hard work for you. Looking at every aspect of your business and identify all qualifying activity.

Remediation of Contaminated Land

There’s money hiding in the work you do on your land and property.

Remediation of Contaminated Land (RoCL) tax relief is a government incentive designed to help companies bring derelict brownfield sites back into use and to remove contaminants from land and property acquired to uncover their full potential.

Commonly, this involves treating or removing contaminants in land and property to prevent harm to animals, humans and the property itself.

The relief allows an additional deduction for Corporation Tax purposes which can take the form of a cash receipt for lossmaking companies. The qualifying costs associated with these activities are then enhanced to provide the company with an additional tax relief.

Qualifying RoCL activities would include the removal of asbestos, the removal or treatment of Japanese Knotweed, the treatment of gasses and chemicals within the land following a survey, the removal of underground contaminated tanks and the removal of concrete foundations, pillars and bases to bring long-term derelict land back into use.

The Patent Box

  1. Are you a limited company?

  2. Do you have an existing patent or are you considering apply for one?

Then keep reading as you could be eligible.

The Patent Box tax relief is the government’s way of rewarding companies that are driving innovation. The aim is to encourage the development of new patented inventions in the UK.
If your company is making a profit on your patented inventions, you will be eligible for a lower effective corporation tax rate of 10% on your relevant profits. This will save your company money and allow you to invest in future innovation.

The Patent Box regime applies to all patents granted in the UK and European Patent Offices. The regime is optional, a company can claim the lower effective tax rate benefit if they have opted in and meet the relevant criteria.
