Join Benjamin Craig, Associate R&D Tax Director at Ayming, as he explains key announcements from this year’s Autumn Statement and the impending merged R&D incentive scheme.

Due to the high demand on the previous webinar regarding the new merged R&D tax scheme, we will be running an additional webinar. This webinar will cover the Autumn statement as well as the new proposed R&D scheme. As the draft legislation currently stands, all companies will be directed towards a unified scheme for eligible R&D expenditure incurred on or after 1st April 2024, signifying the discontinuation of the current SME R&D tax relief scheme. There is an ongoing consultation for feedback on the draft legislation, which the government will ratify at a future fiscal event.

This seismic policy shift carries substantial implications for businesses aiming to leverage R&D tax incentives effectively. We’ll provide a clear understanding of these changes and how your claim would be affected under the merged scheme.

Key topics we will cover:

  1. Key announcements in the Autumn Statement
  2. Upcoming changes to the R&D tax relief schemes
  3. Generosity: How big is the benefit, and how might it change?
  4. Eligibility: What costs can I include now, and what’s coming in 2024?
  5. How do we treat subcontracting and subsidies?
  6. What is the ‘intensive scheme’?
