Regional Information on Corporation Tax Reliefs

We’d like to hear about your experiences of HMRC’s R&D tax credit system

We are currently contacting businesses to ask for help with an important study to explore HMRC’s (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs) Research and Development (R&D) tax credit system. The research is intended to give HMRC more information on how the R&D tax credit system works and help to shape future policy decisions made by HMRC.

BMG Research, an independent research company, has been commissioned by HMRC to talk to companies that have received R&D tax credits about their R&D activities, the types of qualifying expenditure they incurred, and the locations of R&D activity. Your contact details have been randomly selected from HMRC records of companies that have received tax credits in recent years. Your feedback is very important as it will allow HMRC to understand how the R&D tax credit system is working for companies across the UK. This research project is referenced on the .GOV website here (you may need to right click > open in new tab as this is a direct link to the .GOV website)

For more information on this, and how HMRC protects the data it holds about your company, please see HMRC’s research webpage here. ( you may need to right click > open in new tab as this is a direct link to the .GOV website)

Taking part is easy: One of BMG’s telephone interviewers will call you (from telephone number 0121 2601008) to arrange to take you through the survey at a convenient time – the survey should take about 20 minutes to complete.

Some of the questions relate to details of your R&D tax credit claim, so it would be very helpful if you could have the relevant documentation to hand when completing the survey.

Is this research confidential? Please be assured that if you choose to participate, your answers will be treated in strict confidence. BMG Research will not provide HMRC with any information that could identify you or your organisation without your permission. BMG Research abides by the Market Research Society Code of Conduct at all times.
