Research and Development Tax Credits within the Engineering sector

With engineering encompassing such a vast range of industries, ranging from aerospace to transportation, our lives are impacted daily by changes within this sector. As a result, research and development (R&D) is an essential element of day-to-day practice for those working in this field.

Being eligible for R&D tax credit centres around two key areas. You need to be either:

Producing new or improved products.

Design and develop a product involving some degree of uncertainty, for which the answers were not obvious.

Engineering requires a huge amount of research and development (R&D) to take place. Depending on the discipline, this take the form of identification and solving of potential risks. This could also include the development of computer simulations and modelling. All of this takes place alongside continual testing and refining until a solution is found.
