How might an injection moulding company benefit from R&D tax relief?

Injection moulding is a widely used manufacturing process that involves the production of plastic parts and components by injecting molten material into a mould. As an injection moulding company, you may wonder how you can leverage R&D tax relief to drive innovation, improve processes, and stay competitive in the industry.

Some examples of projects and activities that could qualify for research and development tax relief include:

R&D tax relief allows Injection Moulding companies to invest in research and development of new and improved manufacturing techniques.

 This can include the development of innovative mould designs, process optimisation and automation solutions to enhance productivity and efficiency.

Researching and developing new materials or improving existing ones is a crucial aspect of Injection Moulding. 

R&D tax relief provides financial incentives to companies that undertake projects focused on material innovation, such as developing high-performance polymers or eco-friendly alternatives, which can lead to improved product quality and cost-effectiveness.
