R&D staff costs – LG

“The main costs within an R&D claim will be staff costs.

Staff costs include gross salary, employers’ NIC and employers’ pension contributions and given the generous tax relief applying to eligible costs, this may factor into your company’s consideration of remuneration planning, particularly for small businesses.

Remember, dividends do not qualify for R&D uplift.”
