Can I claim again next year for R&D tax credits?

You can claim for what you spent on eligible R&D costs in the next tax year but you cannot reuse the same R&D claim. It’s natural for certain innovations to take over a year to complete the research and development needed. You’ll need new technical documentation created that reflects your involvement in R&D from the tax year you’re claiming in alone, stating where you were up to at the start of the financial year and what you did throughout the year. It’s important to note what counts as R&D and what doesn’t. Eligible R&D activities involve the work that is directly related to research and development and encompasses technical uncertainty. Therefore, the commercial, aesthetic, business administration, and production of your goods or services you cannot claim for because they’re not genuine R&D.
