How clever accountancy and tax credits can generate cash benefit for your business

You don’t need to be a tech company to get R&D cash back

Many UK maritime and marine small business owners don’t realise that when they spend time and money improving a process, refining a service, or developing a product, their company could be due a significant cash rebate through the R&D tax credit system.

The mere mention of a phrase like ‘tax credits’ is usually enough to turn off business leaders and entrepreneurs, because it sounds like something intangible and not of immediate benefit. Yet the scheme is a misnomer, because it actually delivers real cash paid into your business on completing a successful claim.

Moreover, this incentive is not just limited to technology-based businesses. Any enterprise that takes some risk in improving its operations or customer offerings could qualify for some rebate by investing in personnel and materials.

The projects we find that qualify for R&D relief include development of more efficient systems, emission reducing initiatives and generally major technological improvements to outdated processes and systems, of course along with the development of new products.

There are a large number of marine companies that are either not aware of the relief or who assume it will not apply to them. On average, first claims in my experience can easily generate £30,000 of cash benefit, often much more, with one marine client benefiting from a claim providing a cash boost totalling £100,000 this year.
