The NEAA is partnered with Lumo to help spread the word about Research and Development claims (R&D). The region is world renowned for automotive manufacturing, with new and emerging technologies such as advanced propulsion, connected and autonomous vehicles, but stats also show that the North East is not claiming enough when it comes to R&D.

Manufacturing and Engineering are ideal R&D claim candidates. For Example, do you:

  • Spend money on developing new products? Probably.
  • Spend money on creating new processes, or enhancing existing ones? Again, probably.

So, if the above applies to you, and you’re spending a lot of time and money developing new products and creating new processes, then R&D tax credits are something you should be looking at.
