R&D payment delays as HMRC investigates irregular claims

printer Mail

HMRC is pausing some research and development tax credit payments while it investigates irregular claims. The majority of R&D relief claims will remain unaffected, subject to some delays to the usual processing times. HMRC advises that to help process R&D payments quickly, companies should ensure all entries are completed on the R&D section of the CT600, and companies should also:

  • submit additional information to support the claim, such as the R&D report; and
  • review the latest guidance on for completing the CT600.

HMRC asks R&D claimants to be patient and not to contact the R&D helpline/mailbox to chase their claims. Instead, agents should check the company’s online account to check the status of the claim.
