Looking for a great funding solution?

The retail sector is a crucial part of the UK economy. It includes around 300,000 different businesses and employs over 3 million people. Before the pandemic struck, retail sales in the country were worth approximately £440 billion, with the maximum amount coming from food, clothing, fuel, and household goods, respectively. Even though the pandemic has adversely affected the retail industry and led to a drastic decline in sales, early signs indicate that the sector will bounce back and reach pre-pandemic levels sooner than expected. While several areas within retail and wholesale are undergoing a remarkable transformation, one particular area of innovation that has contributed to the rapid growth and recovery of this industry the most is e-commerce. 

Despite involving extensive R&D and technological advancement, the retail sector often misses out on R&D Tax Credits. The majority of the large retail companies and many smaller ones invest large sums in R&D to develop innovative software and digital solutions that improve the selling process, stock management and security of online retail. As businesses need to overcome several technological challenges while developing such creative e-commerce solutions, they are often eligible to receive funding through the R&D Tax Credit scheme. Some areas of retail innovation that may qualify include:

  • Development of bespoke e-commerce platforms
  • Improvement of the existing or development of new integrated systems of stock and account management
  • Development of inventive data analysis and data encryption solutions
  • Development of secure worldwide payment gateways
  • Design and development of innovative, eco-friendly packaging materials and products
  • Development of Blockchain technology to make supply chain better and more cost-efficient.
