It’s not all about ‘people wearing white coats in labs’ …
R&D tax relief can only be claimed by companies that have incurred expenditure on qualifying R&D projects that are relevant to the company’s trade.
A project should address an area of scientific or technological uncertainty and be innovative.
Further, the innovation needs to be an improvement in the overall knowledge in the relevant field of research, not just an advancement for the company.
