This R&D tax credit clinic aims to provide important insights into the key elements of preparing and defending a robust R&D tax credit claim i.e. the scientific/ engineering, finance/ tax technical and documentation/ evidence aspects of a claim.

It is aimed at both in a scientific/engineering people and people working in finance or tax related roles to provide the necessary insights required for each discipline’s perspective. It should be relevant to all those responsible for managing, recording and claiming the credits.

It may also be of interest to anyone who has not yet claimed R&D tax credits but is considering doing so in the future. This clinic should provide insight into whether the credit is for you and whether there are steps you should start taking now to ensure the best outcomes.

During the clinic KPMG will outline an overview of the R&D Tax Credit, highlight the technical and finance aspects of the credit, discuss specific and detailed best practice on managing documentation and dealing with audit situations, followed by a detailed discussion and Q&A.

The goal is to help companies become more independent in the management of claims, and to be prepared so to be best placed to defend the claim in the event of audit.

This clinic will be delivered by Emma Fidgeon-Kavanagh and Dr Eoin McCarthy from KPMG’s R&D Incentives Practice, highly experienced practitioners in R&D tax incentives.
