R&D activities in Agriculture.

Typically, activities that qualify will aid the advancement of knowledge or capability in the business and wider industry.

These activities might be regarded as day-to-day for an agricultural business but can potentially be included within an R&D claim.

Agriculture has long been at the forefront of solving problems with hard work and innovation.

What types of activities qualify then?

Qualifying activities are wide-ranging but will depend on a number of factors, such as the level of technical uncertainty, the level of design input and responsibility, and the level of risk.

However, in all cases, there should be an advancement of knowledge or capability in the sector.

Examples of the types of projects we have seen qualify include:

  • Inspired Corporate Advisory Integration of new automation smart software

  • Inspired Corporate Advisory Developing maintenance planning to improve soil and land quality
  • Inspired Corporate Advisory Animal genetic improvements through selective breeding

These projects do not need to be successful in order to qualify for R&D tax relief.
