The changing environment for R&D tax relief and Innovation Funding
The R&D Tax Relief scheme costs the UK Taxpayer £6BN+. To ensure the taxpayer is getting value for this huge sum HMRC have significantly increased scrutiny of claims made and introduced new legislation to govern the claim process.
This session will see our member Sedulo’s R&D Tax Relief Team explore how the recent changes will impact claimants and describe how the increased risks can be mitigated.
The event will also see Sedulo’s Funding Solutions Team explore how growing, innovative business, can source appropriate finance to fund their growth.
Sedulo is one of the UK’s fastest growing finance firms. The business has grown from incorporation in 2009 to employing around 200 people across 4 UK cities. Founded as an accountancy practice the business is now a full services finance firm.
