Research and Development tax credits: distribution of claims by scheme and industry sector

Statistics show the number of Research and Development tax credit claims and amount claimed by scheme and industry sector for financial year ending 2014.



Industry sector is based on primary SIC2007 coding of registered company. This coding might not correspond to the industry sector of the Research and Development (R&D) activity, so caution must be exercised when interpreting these figures.

Figures are broken down into Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) R&D schemes, and Large Company R&D schemes. The Large company scheme is split into large companies and SME subcontractors.
