Research and Development

Funding Innovation

Bishop Fleming has already submitted successful claims for Research and Development (R&D) relief in excess of £120m in the past five years.

We have considerable knowledge and expertise in the Research and Development market and understand how to use the rules to maximise the claim. It is often surprising for what expenditure claims can be made. Business costs that would otherwise simply be written off could actually be increased for tax relief purposes, resulting in a substantially reduced corporation tax bill, or even a tax repayment to help fund further development.

Government figures show that companies who have claimed Research and Development relief have recouped on average around £40,000 in tax. Using a professional firm such as Bishop Fleming that has already submitted numerous successful claims on behalf of clients can therefore make a great deal of business sense if you wish to augment your relief.
