R&D Tax Credit Clinic

Clayton Hotel Liffey Valley, Dublin
Tuesday, 10th May, 9.30 – 1.00pm (members exclusive)

This first in-person clinic for some time will be facilitated by Cian Smith and Seamus Leahy of KPMG’s R&D Incentives Practice.  Note these clinics are aimed at both finance and technical people – all those involved in the preparation of an R&D Tax Credit claim.

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 KPMG on this occasion, highly experienced practitioners in R&D tax incentives
  • Specific and detailed best practice overview
  • The most up to date Revenue Guidelines
  • 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
  • Time available at the end of the session for one-to-one advice around your R&D tax credit queries.
