The strength of UK manufacturing is supported by extensive R&D and investment in capital infrastructure. The movement towards more automation and digitisation creates significant opportunities for tax reliefs and incentives for the taxpayer in this sector.
Potential R&D Claims
Many companies are conducting qualifying R&D activities for R&D tax relief purposes in this sector on a daily basis without even realising it.
What may seem as typical day-to-day challenges in the office and field may qualify. This may include developing new products, processes or services or duplicating existing products and processes in an appreciably improved way.
Typical examples within this sector include but aren’t limited to;
The development of a machine with a robotic arm which could handle extremely small components at a very high output speed.
The development of an engine piston which had to be small enough to fit within extremely tight dimensions with virtually zero tolerance.
The development of nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide burner for use in power stations which reduced emissions to below the level set by EU directives.
Potential Patent Box Claims
Some examples of patents in this sector include but are not limited to;
Patented ground penetration device developed for sampling soil.
Various seals used in pumping equipment.
A patented component used to reattach broken barbed wire fences.
A patented toilet flush which reduces water consumption and noise disturbance.
