Is your business missing out on valuable R&D tax relief?

The engineering sector is constantly striving to solve complex problems and improve existing systems. Investing in research and development is at the heart of engineering businesses and can range from the digital design and modelling of products through to developing and testing prototypes, in-depth testing and analysis to overcome implementation challenges. Research conducted in 2019 suggested that UK engineering companies are potentially missing out on over £10 billion of R&D funding each year as many do not realise their projects are eligible for innovation funding.
