R&D Tax Credit
R&D Tax Credit
Is your company claiming its full entitlements for investment in developing innovative products, processes or software in Ireland.
R&D tax credit allows incorporated businesses to benefit from a corporation tax reduction or cash payment from Revenue for costs incurred from work that aims to advance science or technology.
It is a very beneficial incentive to businesses seeking to innovate and encourages Irish companies to become world leaders in science and technology.
We realise that it can be a challenging task to figure out exactly what your entitlements are and somewhat daunting to ensure the administration and claims process meets Revenue requirements.
Our R&D tax credit will walk you through the process of your claim, making sure that all the qualification and compliance boxes are ticked in both the financial and technical documentation.
We’ll ensure that your business maximises claims for your R&D tax credit entitlements.
