R&D Tax Credit Clinic, virtual

Complimentary members’ R&D Tax Credit clinics for finance, technical & other colleagues across industry who should understand this key support for companies engaged in Research, Development & Innovation.

1. R&D Tax Credit Clinic with Deloitte

Wednesday, 7th September, 9.30 – 11am (members exclusive) – virtual

With the budget around the corner, we’re delighted to be presenting this R&D Tax Credit Clinic with Deloitte.

We will be joined by Cathal Noone, recently appointed Partner at Deloitte. Cathal joined Deloitte in April and leads the Deloitte Gi3 service line (Global investment and innovation incentives) in Ireland, which encompasses Deloitte’s R&D tax credit offering, as well as broader grants and incentives. Cathal will be joined by his colleagues Paul Smith, Senior Tax Manager and Brian McDonnell, R&D and Government Incentives.

This clinic will focus on the most pressing issues for claimants of the R&D tax credit in Ireland including issues of failure capture and cloud computing. Identifying qualifying projects (advancements and uncertainties), correctly calculating associated costs, and accurately and succinctly evidencing activities undertaken with good governance and robust systems and controls.

We’ll also hear about the Revenue’s new code of practice and what that means in practical terms for those claiming or planning to claim R&D Tax Credits.
The webinar will be a maximum of 90 minutes in duration, including presentation and plenty of time for Q&A.

2. One to Ones

For first time claimants or companies that require a more detailed explanation of the mechanics of the credit, Deloitte are happy to offer one-to-one sessions. Importantly, should you have any specific tax technical, scientific/technical or governance questions that you don’t wish to raise in Q&A they are happy to offer one-to-one sessions with you also.

For any company who would like to discuss R&D Tax Credits in more detail with the Deloitte team, individual, complimentary, 20-minute time slots can be booked. 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.
  • Facilitated by Deloitte on this occasion, highly experienced practitioners in R&D tax incentives
  • Specific and detailed best practice overview
  • The most up to date Revenue Guidelines including the recent announcement with regards to R&D Tax Credit payments in the context of the Covid-19 crisis
  • Detailed discussion and Q&A
  • Aimed at both scientific/engineering people and those working in finance related roles, i.e. relevant to all those responsible for managing, recording and claiming the credits
  • An opportunity to understand the R&D Tax Credit Scheme in detail
  • Advice on managing documentation and dealing with audit situations
