THE SME SCHEME

< BACK
How does it work?

Under this scheme, qualifying R&D expenditure is enhanced by an additional 130% in the company’s tax computation.

For example, if £100,000 of qualifying expenditure is identified and this has already been included in the company's accounts, an additional deduction of £130,000 can be included in the tax computation.

For a profitable SME, the additional deduction in the tax computation will reduce taxable profits. The company will then benefit from a reduced corporation tax liability.

For a loss-making SME, the additional deduction will increase the company’s taxable loss. The company can then benefit from surrendering the loss for a payable R&D tax credit.

In some cases, an SME may see a combination of the above two benefits.

What is it worth?

The net benefit of the SME scheme depends on the tax position of the company.

A profit-making SME can expect to see an effective benefit of up to 25% (i.e. 25p for every £1 of qualifying R&D expenditure).

A loss-making SME can expect to see an effective benefit of up to 33% (i.e. 33p for every £1 of qualifying R&D expenditure).

Contact us to discuss your claim

Having worked unhappily with a previous R&D tax relief company, Heydon Innovation came as a complete breath of fresh air. The team were highly thorough, incredibly knowledgeable and ensured that we were informed in plain English through our entire claim process. They empowered us with tax law and ensured we claimed correctly, ethically and ensured no stone was left unturned. I am very happy to highly recommend Heydon Innovation, you will not find more proficient and professional R&D tax advisers.
