R&D Tax Credits are a very niche part of the UK tax code that could
bring your construction or property company thousands of pounds in tax relief.

Bespoke projects, new building techniques and the introduction of environmentally friendly materials makes research and development activities increasingly important in the property and construction industries.

Some examples of eligible R&D activities include:

  • Bespoke solutions to a building project
  • New building techniques
  • Trial and error for new materials that were previously untested in a construction environment
  • Improving properties through energy efficiency, fire safety, plumbing and more
  • Overcoming safety standards and industry regulations
  • Developing new and innovative approaches to property and construction buildings

Bonsers Restoration

“To actually apply R&D tax credits to historic buildings is gobsmacking. You kind of take it for granted that you just get over issues. Every single building has issues and historic ones are even worse.”
