Draft guidance on Research & Development expenditure credit (RDEC) scheme

FA 13 introduced an 'above the line' credit for large companies for research and development (R&D) expenditure incurred on or after 1 April 2013.

The expenditure credit scheme will run alongside the current large company scheme until 31 March 2016 when the large scheme will cease.

HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) has published draft guidance to help customers understand how the proposed new rules would work.
