Is your company looking for innovative solutions for production challenges?

Research and development in the manufacturing industry

Are you one of the many manufacturing businesses eligible for R&D Tax Credit? Research and development are an inseparable element of the activities of companies in the manufacturing industry. Investments in the development of technology and manufacturing processes are necessary to gain a competitive advantage. R&D tax relief is intended to encourage enterprises to develop new products and services, moreover to take up technical challenges, even if they relate to operational activities, e.g. a new production line or creating a product tailored to customer requirements.

Leyton experts note a relatively low level of awareness in production companies regarding the possibility of using the R&D tax relief. Our experience shows, that production companies that took advantage of the research and development tax relief obtained significant financial benefits in this way.

Examples of R&D activities in the manufacturing industry:

● development of new or improved production technology,
● development of new or improved products,
● development or improvement of the production process – reduction of process defects,
● design and development prototypes of machines with new functions – optimization through the use of improved / innovative machine / process solutions,
● design and creation of modern production tools,
● creating machines or shaping processes with better precision or using new materials,
● developing methods to reduce the negative impact on the environment through the use of alternative processes or materials,
● scaling or increasing the precision of processes thanks to the use of new materials or machines.

For our clients we:

  • Identify research and development activities and estimate the savings potential as the R&D relief,
  • Prepare technical documentation confirming the eligibility of activities and the legitimacy of using the R&D tax relief,
  • Calculate the R&D tax relief and help you settle it in the tax return,
  • Help in obtaining individual interpretations of tax law regarding R&D activities,
  • Support you in the verification proceedings in case of tax authorities’ audits,
  • Cooperation with Leyton is based only on the success fee model.
