Location: RML Group, Wellingborough, Northants

Motorsport R&D Tax Credit
Information Update Programme


 Workshop 1 kindly hosted by

Tuesday 3 March 2015
RML Group, Wellingborough

According to the UK government “R&D Tax credits are the single most important funds for SME’s in the UK”. If you do not currently claim, or are unsure how to do so, the MIA’s ‘R&D Tax Credit Information Update Programme’ can help you.

Many motorsport companies stand to benefit substantially from the R&D Tax Credit scheme, yet most do not successfully claim their share. The MIA’s 2013 National Review of the Motorsport Valley Business Cluster found that:

  • 15% of motorsport companies spent OVER 25% of sales turnover on R&D

  • Motorsport companies spent an average of 12% of sales turnover on R&D


  • Only 20% claimed an R&D tax credit in the last 3 years, with just 13% registering patents

This, the first in a comprehensive programme of quarterly half-day workshops, organised in partnership with HMRC and professional industry tax experts, will provide delegates with ‘tried and tested’ advice and assistance to help you claim, based on successful real-life case study examples from your motorsport industry peers. 

Each workshop will provide:

  • CURRENT overview of the R&D Tax Credits scheme, including ‘Patent Box’
  • PROFESSIONAL advice and guidance, using real-life case study examples
  • ONE-TO-ONE consultations and networking with fellow-industry delegates and experts
  • Lunch and refreshments throughout


“We claimed under the R&D Tax Credit Scheme right from the beginning about ten years ago.”
“If we are to maintain a manufacturing base here in the UK, then being innovative and having that innovation encouraged and supported by HMRC in this way is vital.”

Alistair Fergusson, Managing Director, Alcon Components Ltd
