Is your business missing out on valuable R&D Tax Relief?

The manufacturing sector is constantly striving to increase efficiency, improve functionality and solve production problems. R&D tax relief is a key method for manufacturing businesses to receive an important financial benefit which can be reinvested into further innovation.More than a quarter of the R&D Tax Relief claims in 2017/18 came from the manufacturing industry but there are still thousands of UK businesses which are missing out on this financial support because of a lack of awareness of eligibility.
