The Next CEA Power Hour – Tuesday 25 August 2020, 13.00-14.00

The CEA Power Hour webinar – Increasing Cashflow Through Government R&D Tax Credits

Tuesday 25 August 2020, 13.00-14.00

The next CEA Power Hour webinar will focus on helping you to increase cashflow using Government R&D tax credits. This is a vital but massively untapped line of funding and there are many misconceptions regarding the scheme.

CEA Service Partner, MPA Ltd, will talk you through the scheme, how it applies to the construction equipment industry and how it can work for both profit making or loss making companies. Even if you have already filed a claim, there is often an increase in the value if you are working with a specialist R&D provider.

During the hour, MPA will cover:

  • How R&D tax credits can provide additional cashflow
  • Which companies can claim
  • How to access the benefit quickly
  • Keeping the claim process simple
  • The challenge of completing a claim during a furlough period
  • Answer your questions
