R&D in The Construction Industry
10:30 - 11:00, Brunel Room
Sarah will explore how R&D Tax Credits can support innovation within the construction industry through the whole supply chain from the initial design process, through the entire build, onto the final fit out and even the landscaping. This session will look at how "innovation” is identified and what aspects of every day activity can be included in a claim. If you have heard about R&D Tax Relief but don’t know whether you should be claiming, come along to this session and we will explain who the scheme is for and how it relates to the Construction Industry.
