 The creation of software can qualify either where it is a tool on larger projects or where the development is the objective of the project. HMRC lists projects which are likely to qualify for R & D tax relief as:

  • Developing new operating systems or languages.
  • Creating new search engines using materially new search methods.
  • Resolving conflicts within hardware or software, where the existence of a problem area and the absence of a known solution have been documented.
  • Creating new or more efficient algorithms whose improvements depend on previously untried techniques.
  • Creating new encryption or security techniques that do not follow established methodologies.
