Manufacturing What we do for manufacturing businesses
Manufacturing is the sector that produces the most amount of R&D Tax claims and receives the most back from HMRC every year, and it’s no surprise given how far reaching the R&D Tax regime can extend across so many aspects of manufacturing businesses and how much innovation is at the core of the manufacturing industry.
From the development of products all the way through to improving the scalability and process efficiencies, innovation is truly at the core of the manufacturing industry.
Examples of R&D activity within the Manufacturing sector include:
- Integrating new materials to improve a products performance.
- Designing, building and testing prototypes.
- Improving production efficiencies through reduced cost, waste or time.
- Developing machinery with greater precision or scalability.
- NPD improving on the performance, functionality or specification of earlier iterations or market place competitors.
- Scaling up production whilst maintaining the same quality and performance of a prototype.
- Developing innovative equipment.
- Generating new knowledge around the functionality of materials regarding their strength, flexibility, weight, temperature tolerances etc.
- Streamlining manufacturing processes through automation.
