These refunds are in addition to USD 850 thousand received in March of 2020 from the UK related to 2017 and 2018 research and development activities.

UK small or medium-sized enterprise R&D tax relief allows companies to deduct up to 230% their qualifying costs from their yearly profit or claim a tax credit if the company is loss making, worth up to 14.5% of the eligible loss.
