A common question from clients is if they can claim Research & Development (R&D) tax relief for travel costs they have incurred in relation to an R&D project. The answer to is Yes, only if these funds are expenses paid for by an individual then repaid by the company.

However, if the company pays for these costs directly, then, unfortunately, the HMRC do not allow for this to be a claimable R&D expenditure. Therefore, if your company is going to be spending a significant amount on travel relating to an R&D project it is key to bear in mind what is claimable.
