PTP CT Platform

SME R&D – Intensive tax credits

The government announced that the tax credit rate for SME R&D claims would reduce from 14.5% to 10%, however in addition to this the government announced a new SME tax credit for ‘R&D Intensive’ companies; companies whose qualifying expenditure is 40% or more will be allowed to claim an SME tax credit at an uplifted rate of 14.5%.

We have updated the R&D functionality to allow you to easily identify a company as an R&D intensive company and subsequently have the software automatically calculate the corresponding SME R&D claim at the uplifted 14.5%, without any additional manual calculations. This will then automatically map to the CT600 and supporting documents.

Creative tax credit higher rate extension

The government announced a temporary extension to the rate rises of Theatre tax relief, Orchestra tax relief and Museums & galleries exhibition tax relief for 2 additional years. The government originally intended for these increased tax rates to taper down from the 1st April 2023 however, this has now been extended to the 1st April 2025.

Current tax credit rates from 1st April 2023:

  • Theatre (Non-Touring/Touring) – 45%/50%
  • Orchestra – 50%
  • Museum & Galleries (Non-Touring/Touring) – 45%/50%
