Manufacturing firms face mounting financial pressures from rising business costs to ever-increasing competition overseas. However, the sector is intrinsically innovative and deserves reward for this innovative activity.
In conjunction with the Manufacturing Technologies Association, Ayming’s experts will discuss R&D tax credits and take a deep dive into specific areas of activity within the sector.
During the webinar, we’ll cover:
- Typical R&D tax cost categories for engineering-based manufacturers
- Common pitfalls and mistakes made in manufacturing claims
- High energy usage and what this means for your R&D tax claim
- Overview of the R&D landscape in the UK and how it differs for SMEs & Large companies
- Examples of qualifying activity from our client base
To wrap up the event, we will have a Q&A where our experts will answer any other questions you might have.
