Choosing the correct apportionment method

When working out your basis of apportionment for each expenditure type, you can ask yourself if the apportionment method best reflects the extent to which the expenditure has been incurred on my R&D activities.

If the answer is yes and you can explain why it is the best method of apportionment for this type of expenditure, then it is likely that you have chosen a reasonable basis of apportionment.

If you are unable to answer yes to this question, you should not use this basis of apportionment.
