Research and Development tax credits: cost of support claimed by scheme and financial year on a receipts basis

Statistics show the cost of the support claimed for the Research and Development tax credits on a receipts basis by scheme for financial years ending 2001 to 2014.



The figures are based on claims for Research and Development (R&D) tax credits made by companies in Company Tax returns received on or before 30 June 2015 and exclude a small number of large company claims made in a non-standard format.

They are broken down by scheme: Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) R&D; Large Company R&D and Vaccines Research Relief. The Large company scheme is split into large companies and SME subcontractors.
