Rethinking R&D Tax Incentives

We are pleased to welcome experts from BDO to the Science Park in October for a focused Lunch & Learn event on R&D taxation reforms and the opportunities that these could deliver to your business. 


Wednesday 4 October 2023: 12.00-1.30 

Axis Conference Centre, Southampton Science Park, Chilworth, SO16 7NP

Making the most of HMRC incentives and grants for research and development should be an easy decision for any business as they are designed to provide a welcome cash injection for your business or reduce its tax burden. These UK Government opportunities take various forms, including R&D tax credits, allowances like Patent Box and other sector specific tax reliefs, as well as grants for innovation and growth projects. 

However, HMRC introduced new rules from April 2023 and 2024, and has also recently increased scrutiny on claims, so it’s critical to access the right advice to optimise your claims, ensure they’re aligned with best practices and, more importantly, guard against introducing risks into your business. 

BDO will be hosting and delivering this insightful session, covering the latest on R&D taxation changes and risks, Patent Box and other related hot topics so that attendees can move forward with confidence.

All Southampton Science Park Lunch & Learn sessions are free for any business manager to attend: you do not need to be a resident at the Science Park. What better way to spend your lunch break than learning something new or brushing up on your knowledge? Register now
