As stated in the consultation on merging the research and development R&D tax schemes published on 13 January 2023, it is currently the Government’s intention that, if implemented, the new scheme will be in place for expenditure incurred from 1 April 2024. In order to keep open the option of a merged scheme, the government will publish a summary of responses to the consultation and draft legislation in the Summer.

Any further changes as a part of the ongoing R&D tax reliefs review will be announced at a future fiscal event, including a final decision on whether to merge the R&D expenditure credit and SME schemes.
