development (R&D) tax relief can help fund the technological
advances you need to keep your company competitive, by reducing
your tax bill or providing you with cash. Over 4,500 small and
medium-sized (SME) companies are claiming more than £250m pounds

Customs (HMRC). This guidance will help you decide if you could

R&D tax relief, often called R&D tax credits, reduces your taxable profits and can create or increase taxable losses. This can mean you pay less corporation tax or can lead to cash back from the Government via payable R&D tax credits.
Some SME companies not in profit can surrender their R&D tax losses for cash (in the form of a payable credit) of up to 24p per £1 pound of actual expenditure within specified categories.
