About RIFT R&D Tax Credits

RIFT R&D Tax Credits helps entrepreneurs that have the creativity, vision and know-how to produce the ideas and products that keep Britain great.

British businesses are among the strongest ground-breakers and problem solvers there are, which is why the UK is ranked second in the world for innovation. Part of our role is to get the message out that there is a huge amount of support from the government to help if you know where to look. In fact one of the most powerful funding mechanisms takes the form of R&D tax relief. Tax relief and tax credits may not be glamorous but they can be the difference between getting an idea up and running or staying stuck firmly on the start line.

SME Research & Development Tax Relief

If you're looking into making a Research and Development Tax Relief claim, then size definitely matters. While any size of business can benefit from the scheme, the terms on offer for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are even better than for the large company tax relief scheme. The first step to seeing if you're eligible for the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise version of R&D Tax Relief is to make sure you meet the relevant definition of SME.

Large Company  R&D Tax Relief

Even if your business doesn't fit HMRC's definition of "small" or "medium-sized" there's still a lot of Research and Development Tax Relief on offer. The long and short of it is that if you've got an annual turnover of more than €100 million or a balance sheet of over €86 million then you need to look into either the R&D Large Company Scheme or REDEC for your R&D support.
