Does your business look for innovative solutions to technical challenges?

Are you one of the many engineering businesses eligible for R&D Tax Relief?

R&D in Engineering

The engineering sector is constantly working to solve complex problems and improve existing systems; investing in R&D is at the heart of many businesses in this sector. R&D in Engineering can range from the digital design and modelling of products through to developing and testing prototypes, in-depth testing and analysis and overcoming implementation challenges. According to some statistics a lot of engineering companies are potentially missing out R&D funding each year as many companies do not realise their projects are eligible for innovation funding.

Examples of R&D activity in the Engineering industry

  • Developing a new or changing a product or process that is more efficient, robust, flexible or cheaper
  • Developing original prototypes
  • Integrating new materials to improve product performance and manufacturing processes
  • Automation within the manufacturing process
  • Processes to scale up production without compromising product quality
  • Combining technologies using technically challenging methods
