Unlocking the Power of Research and Development Tax Credits to Fuel Growth

About this event

R&D Tax Credits were designed to reward innovation and have been fueling the growth of UK businesses for over 20 years. Today, they are an undeniably valuable source of funding for many companies. But how do you ensure you’re avoiding common pitfalls and unlocking the full value of your claim?

Mike Baker, Business Development Manager at EmpowerRD, is joining us to answer that question. With special attention to recent important changes, Mike will explain how this government scheme can provide innovative businesses with a recurring source of non-dilutive, growth capital.

EmpowerRD is a trusted advisor setting industry standards for the Chartered Institute of Taxation, and sits on HMRC’s R&D Consultative Committee advising the government on policy in this space. They specialize in working with high-growth tech-enabled startups.

Tune in to learn:

  • All about R&D tax credits: from eligibility to qualifying costs
  • How the scheme is evolving
  • What to know before for choosing an advisor
  • Plus, audience Q&A!
