This news item summarises the announcements on R&D Tax Relief made as part of the Budget 2021 on 3 March 2021.
Despite much lobbying from interested parties the Budget on 3 March did not contain any measures to legislate for an increase in the R&D tax relief available under either the SME scheme or the R&D expenditure credit (RDEC) scheme. Instead, the previously announced SME cap will go ahead and announcements were made regarding a previous consultation on the widening of qualifying costs to include data and cloud computing costs and of a new review of the reliefs, supported by a consultation with stakeholders.
Our article examines the Budget announcements in more detail and you can view it here.
