Change of enforcement date for new claim notification and additional information requirements: August 8, 2023

New claim notification and additional information requirements will not be enforced until August 8, 2023.

Originally due to come into effect on August 1, 2023, ‘The relief for research and development (content of claim notifications, additional information requirements and miscellaneous amendments) regulations 2023’ will now be laid a week later than expected due to delays in Finance Bill timetabling.

  • Customers will be able to claim qualifying expenditures on data licences and cloud computing costs.
