R&D Expenditure Credits (RDEC)

The introduction of RDEC was a major government policy initiative. It was introduced to encourage corporates and multinationals to carry out development and innovation in the UK. By making the relief available to all companies including loss making entities, it is intended to motivate large business to invest in UK staff and resources.

The legislation has taken the claim value out of the tax line and moved it above the line, into the statutory accounts. This has the effect of increasing the visibility of the R&D relief to all company stakeholders and aligning interests.

Every company is different

We adapt our methodology to your company, leading to a bespoke service for each of our large business clients.

The tax benefit of RDEC

RDEC is now a payable 13% credit of eligible R&D expenditure incurred, providing an after tax benefit of 10.53% at the main rate of corporation tax currently 19%.

RDEC significantly increased the generosity of the Large Company R&D Tax Relief scheme. However, with the greater generosity, there is now greater scrutiny over certain types of claims.

Therefore, it is important that your claim complies fully with the legislation, guidelines and the relevant Finance Acts. Also that the RDEC report is as detailed, robust and thorough as possible. This helps HMRC evaluate and approve your claim.
