Glazing and R&D Tax Credits
The UK Government’s R&D tax credits initiative offers an additional tax reduction of up to 33p for every qualifying pound spent on R&D. When a glazing company starts investigating, testing and trying to create new solutions to meet a job brief, process inefficiency or gap in the market, they are carrying out R&D.
Our GGF partnership means that any members of the GGF will now be able to avail of expert R&D tax advice throughout the year – all with a special 20% discounted rate on fees, which are only chargeable on successful claims.
