When working out the enhanced deduction, the core expenditure relates to the total spend on the costs directly incurred in creating the project. The qualifying expenditure relates to the spending on services or goods used; however, the amount of enhancement or payable tax credits are determined by the amount of total core expenditure that has been incurred. They also vary depending on the type of relief claimed. This is a very complex area of tax law, and a skilled and certified accountant can help you navigate it successfully.
