R&D Funding and Tax Credit Clinic, Donegal, 16th May

Getting an overview of the R&D funding landscape and digging into the detail of R&D Tax Credits.  

Mill Park Hotel, The Mullins, Donegal Town

Thursday, 16th May – 9.00am to 2.00pm 

IRDG is bringing our popular R&D Funding and Tax Credit Clinic to Donegal for the first time. This is a great opportunity for members in the wider North West region to keep up to date with the ever changing catalogue of R&D grant supports, the ongoing developments to the Tax Credit scheme, and to share experiences with other companies.

The facilitators on this occasion will be Bernie McGahon, IRDG, together with Ian Collins, Tax Partner and Head of Irish Quantitative Services, EY.

State and EU grants are an attractive means for business to secure match funding for R&D activities. Being aware of the wide variety of supports can help you extend, de-risk and speed up your innovation programme and access expertise required. Industry case studies and experiences will also be shared.

Supporting an R&D Tax Credit should not be a retrospective exercise. Having access to complete, up-to-date and accurate information on the two key tests – the science test and the accounting test – is critical. The implementation of systems and procedures for the capturing of relevant supporting documentation further strengthens your claim.

This event is aimed at all those financial, technical and management roles responsible for accessing financial supports in both SMEs and MNCs.

An option is also available for members attending to avail of some individual company time with our expert facilitator during the afternoon after the event. Interested parties can sign up to this on the day.
