Webinar background:

The Scotland manufacturing and engineering industries currently face a myriad of challenges: from ever-rising costs, through to skills shortages and ongoing supply chain disruption.

Innovation and R&D tax relief can help businesses to navigate these threats, though this incentive itself is currently undergoing significant reform.

To bring you up to date on what has changed, the current state of play and the changes coming in to force next year spring, we’ve invited R&D tax relief specialists ForrestBrown to host a special webinar for members.

During the session, you will:
  • Understand the innovation agenda – how HMRC’s approach has changed and the ongoing Government’s consultation into R&D tax relief.
  • Understand the legislative changes coming into force next April and how they will impact your business.
  • Access practical recommendations on how to capture the full value of your innovation and protect your business from risk.

With our previous R&D tax credit adviser, it was filling in form after form. Since switching to ForrestBrown, however, the process has been much smoother because we speak to their sector specialists on a peer-to-peer level.

Robotic handling

This company developed robotic handling to automate the process of picking up flat-pack cases. The robots had to effectively handle cases of varying quality, size and shape. They also had to be able to interact with humans in a shared space and work safely in close proximity.

A product technology engineering

This client delivered a project to build a supersonic wind tunnel with high flow velocities and in a size suitable to be housed within a university. Resulting in a benefit of £100,000.
