R&D tax credit claims

Qualifying expenditure
for landscape architects.

Click on the plus icons to reveal examples of qualifying expenditure.

Phytoremediation

Phytoremediation is a bioremediation process that uses plants to remove, transfer, stabilize or destroy contaminants in the soil and groundwater. These methods frequently qualify under the R&D tax credit scheme where landscape architects experiment with the different species to optimise plant composition for the purpose of soil decontamination.

Drainage management

Work undertaken by landscape architects to improve drainage may be eligible under the R&D tax credit scheme. Whether the aim is to minimise surface water runoff and soil erosion or to sustainably manage the impact of construction and other human activity on the watertable, such projects frequently qualify.

Hydraulic engineering

Hydraulic engineering projects to preserve wetland ecosystems and complex gravity pressured water systems that power water features such as fountains regularly contribute to landscape architecture claims. Similarly, mechanisms that use gravity-fed pressure to sustainably produce currents in still ponds may also qualify.

Public realm

Public realm projects typically contain significant qualifying expenditure. Examples include horticulture to enhance air quality and environmental sustainability, place-making in heritage contexts and the use of mathematical models or software such as Space Syntax to analyse and simulate the flow of crowds in public spaces.

Green roofs & living walls

Green roofs and living walls frequently involve complex analysis to determine the best planting, soil composition and drainage for the installation while maintaining the structural integrity of the building and preventing water ingress. Projects with significant technical complexity willtypically qualify for R&D tax credits.

Topography and geotechnical

The activities undertaken by landscape architects to enhance the topography of a site using recycled backfill are often a significant source of qualifying expenditure for landscaping projects, both in conventional hardscaping and more complex land reclamation activity.
