R & D and how you can can benefit

There’s money hiding in the work that you do.

You would be surprised at what qualifies for R&D tax relief. It’s not just for people in white lab coats.

R&D tax relief is the government’s way of rewarding companies that are developing new or improving existing products, processes, services, devices and materials or advancing the knowledge in their sector.

R&D tax legislation is complex, but our friends over at CATAX are experts and will do all the hard work for you.

Here are some examples of R&D from our industry.

Example 1:

A very specialised aluminium recycling company, with several unique processes:

1) Reducing the amount of recycled aluminium going overseas,

2) Keeping higher quality material in the UK

3) Reducing material going to landfill with a ‘0% to Landfill’ policy

4) Setting new highs in the separation of recyclable material, increasing quality

Example 2:

The company is a media platform that reaches consumers like never before. Advertisers can choose who carries their campaigns, when they carry it and where it gets carried to, with adverts on the side of the paper bags.

  1. a) bags are made from stone paper, not plastic.
  2. b) An App has been developed for advertisers.
  3. c) An algorithm, with patent pending, has also been created.
Example 3:

Recycle mixed building and demolition site waste.

The objective was to build a bespoke recycling line, which would double production from 25 tonnes to 50 tonnes per day, and provide 3 different categories, similar to the current machine, but with an additional category 20-50 mm.

Example 4:

Recycling company required bespoke CRM and order management solution needed to reduce inaccuracies across the various functions/ steps in linking sellers of recyclable waste and thousands of clients, who wanted to buy the material.

The money you get back could help fund your next project:

  • Software development
  • Automation
  • Failed and successful projects
  • Development of new materials
  • Improved processes
  • Development of new and improved products
  • Development of environmental products
  • Development of innovative formulas
  • Plus many more…
