Report background

Despite accounting for over 7% of the UK economy, the construction industry claims less than 3% of all R&D tax credits.

To understand why this is, we conducted an extensive survey of over 90 construction and civil engineering businesses to determine how much they are claiming and how this compares to our own experience of compiling R&D tax credit claims.

Whilst we expected to find a substantial differential in our own claims and those of the industry we were unprepared for the sheer scale of the problem.

For most companies in the sector, the lions’ share of their claim is to be found in their day-to-day activity of delivering projects for clients.
