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

The transport sector is at an exciting stage of radical development. The opportunities offered by evolving technologies and innovation, such as new high speed rail networks and autonomous vehicles, are likely to benefit both the economy and society in the UK. Innovative businesses in the transport sector are ideally placed to capitalise on government tax incentives which reward them for research and development projects. Just 25% of transportation firms have ever claimed R&D Tax Credits however and only 0.8% of total R&D claims came from the sector in 2016/17.
