For any company who would like to discuss R&D Tax Credits in more detail with the Deloitte team, individual 30-minute time slots are available.  A maximum of 10 of these are available, and they should be booked separately by emailing Mary Byrne (mary.byrne@irdg.ie) to request one.  


R&D Tax Credits – overview

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.

These clinics exclusively for members are aimed at those responsible for managing and recording R&D activity for the purposes of claiming Tax Credits. They are suited to those in Finance and in the Technical functions – all parties to a tax credit claim. The goal is to help companies become more independent in the management of claims, and to be fully prepared so as to defend the claim in the event of audit.
