Industries That Benefit From R&D

Research and Development (R&D) isn’t just for tech giants – it’s a powerful tool for companies of all sizes and sectors. Discover how innovation can revolutionize your industry and propel you ahead of the competition.

Other sectors with qualifying R&D expenditure

There are an unlimited amount of industries with expenses that qualify for R&D tax relief, and the above list are by no means exhaustive. If you have used research and development to overcome a level of uncertainty that could not easily be worked out by a professional in your field, then you may be eligible for R&D tax credits.

Previously known as the SME scheme and the RDEC scheme, the new merged scheme for R&D supports all businesses, no matter their size, to improve their cashflow using tax incentives.

How R&D tax credit loans work

R&D tax credit loans enable you to receive your funds within days, instead of waiting weeks, sometimes months for HMRC. This can help to reduce your financial risk and allow you to put your money back into your business much sooner.

Applying for a loan with Buzz Capital is a simple process that can be completed in just four steps.


Fill out your online application form – this takes 5-10 minutes.


Based on the information provided, we’ll issue a term sheet for discussion and signature.


Once the term sheet is agreed, we’ll issue relevant legal documents and make payment when signed.


Our loan is repaid once HMRC has processed your tax credit claim.

R&D eligibility for qualifying costs

Before starting the application process, we advise that you check with your accountant or an R&D specialist to see if your business qualifies for the R&D tax credit scheme. It is not something that can be determined by these four facts alone but they do serve as a good indicator. Whether Buzz can use your R&D claim as collateral for a loan will be subject to further detailed due diligence.
