FAQs:  Medical R&D Tax Credits.

Is there a minimum spend associated with R and D
Tax Relief?

No - there isn't a minimum threshold for R&D spending that qualifies to claim R&D Tax Credits. As soon as you incur costs through qualifying R&D activities, you can start claiming!

Once my R & D claim is approved, how long does it take to receive the benefit?

HMRC aims to pay out R & D tax credits within 28 days. Typically, we see our clients receive their tax benefit from HMRC within 4-6 weeks.

What are the benefits of using a fixed fee R&D Tax Credit provider?

Over time, projects spend more money on qualifying R&D activities. As their claim size grows, percentage-based advisors charge proportionally large fees (10-30% of the benefit) for conducting a very similar service. We don't believe that any advisor should take £100k out of a £500k claim. With a fixed fee, our clients take home a greater return to reinvest into their business' growth.

Can travel expenses be included in my R & D Tax Credit claim?

Yes, travel expenses (i.e - flights and hotels) can be claimed within your R&D tax credits. But for these costs to be included in the R & D claim, employees must have paid for them as an out-of-pocket expense on their personal card and been reimbursement by the business.

Which areas of my medical expenditure can be reclaimed through R&D Tax Credits?

R and D Tax Credits allow claimants to recover up to 27% of costs spent on staffing, subcontractors and consultants, hardware, software, consumables, and payment to the subjects of clinical trials.

Are there any upfront costs involved in Claim Capital's service?

At Claim Capital, we believe in joint success. So, we don't charge our clients a penny until they receive their R & D claim benefit from HMRC! Only then do we operate our fixed fee.
