Government launches consultation on R&D relief
Winner of the “Best Cloud Accounting Firm 2016” award

The government has launched a consultation on simplifying the UK's research and development (R&D) tax relief system, driving innovation and growing the economy.

The consultation runs to 13 March 2023 and sets out proposals on how a single scheme could be designed and implemented.

This would replace the two R&D tax relief schemes currently in place – the Research and Development Expenditure Credit scheme and the small and medium enterprises R&D relief.

This is part of the government's ongoing R&D tax reliefs review, and follows changes announced at Autumn Statement 2022 where the generosities of the two R&D tax schemes were broadly aligned.

Victoria Atkins MP, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, said:

'We are focussed on growing the economy – with thriving businesses bringing more jobs, higher pay and more tax revenue to fund our precious public services.

'Getting R&D tax relief right and fit for the future sits at the heart of making sure the UK remains a competitive location for cutting edge research – helping new firms grow.

'I welcome views on the option to simplify the scheme, especially from those who have experience of the existing tax reliefs.'
