Many manufacturing and engineering companies have already claimed R&D tax relief to some extent and some of them may even have had a visit from specialist tax inspectors as a result of the claim. MTA Members Moore Stephens have some information that could help you. Please read the case study below for more details.

The latest reports from the Bank of England’s Agents remains generally positive, although not exuberant and with some darkish clouds in the overall outlook, while the latest data on industrial output from Europe was also positive;  although growth was modest overall, the capital goods sector is generally seeing steady growth.

That is all for this week, we’ll be back next Friday with more industry related news.  

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

Bank of England Agents’ Summary of Business Conditions, September 2015:  The Bank of England Agents’ report this month shows that manufacturing output growth has been modest overall, partly reflecting weak export demand due to the appreciation of Sterling and subdued world demand.  Automotive and Aerospace companies continued to  report solid output growth, but the impact of weakening demand from the oil & gas sector has fed through related supply chains, even though UK oil & gas output has held up reasonably well as previous investment in capacity came on stream.
