Why R&D Matters

In his most recent Budget, the Chancellor announced the R&D tax credit for larger companies, complementing the R&D tax credit for small and medium-sized companies introduced in Budget 2000.

This level of commitment reflects the Government's determination to increase the level of R&D investment by UK industry. As Figure 1 shows, business R&D intensity in the UK does not fare well with comparable economies.Figure 1 shows the overall average business R&D intensity in the UK, but the picture varies from sector to sector. At 14.8 per cent of sales (1), R&D investment by the UK pharmaceutical industry is competitive by international standards - although recent years have seen a trend for UK-owned groups to undertake an increasing proportion of their R&D outside the UK, and we estimate a decline in the UK share of worldwide pharmaceutical R&D from 11 per cent to 9 per cent (2).
