R&D Incentives

Rewarding your innovative ideas

Home > Innovation > R&D Incentives

Governments around the world have schemes in place to help fund innovative projects or research and development (R&D). These incentives are proven to help stimulate the economy, jobs, and skills creation. Ireland is no different with several schemes available to companies engaged in innovative projects.

In Ireland, we work with companies of all shapes and sizes to help them enhance their research and development; not just by filling out an R&D tax claim, but by first working alongside the financial and technical teams in your organisation to ensure that goals and objectives are clear and achievable. Once everyone is on the same page strategically, we then work to uncover qualifying research and development expenditure.

Helping clients with an R&D claim is only one element of our innovation advice services. Ayming acts as an innovation partner to most of our client base – that means that not only can we help you with an R&D claim, we can also offer best practice advice on your research and development projects, utilising R&D tax credits to boost cash flow, and future innovation and claims.

What are R&D tax credits?

When it comes to R&D tax credits, what counts as qualifying expenditure? R&D tax relief is only available for laboratory-driven research?

For us, questions like these are common, many companies are uncertain about whether or not the R&D tax incentive schemes apply to them. There is a broad spectrum of activities that R&D for tax purposes covers, perhaps more than you might think. The research and development tax incentive schemes are formulated to be applicable to all industries. By missing out on claiming R&D tax relief, you’re unwittingly giving your competitors an advantage.

If you’d like to talk to us about R&D tax credit entitlement, or whether your company could be claiming R&D tax credits, contact us today and we’ll gladly talk you through this very niche area of tax.
