The stats in this article sum it up on how much the construction industry is missing out. According to this article, it is estimated that the value of available R&D tax relief for the UK construction industry is £1bn, yet only £80m is actually being claimed. Put another way, 92% of available government R&D funding for construction is not being taken up. The industry accounts for just 3% of total R&D tax credit claims (manufacturing, IT, and scientific account for 70%). The average construction claim is £30,000 less than the national average. This is really low hanging fruit!
