HMRC aim to turnaround SME R&D tax relief claims within 28 days. However, the length of time it takes for HMRC to review a claim will depend on the complexity of the claim, your accounts and the time of year.

After HMRC have processed and accepted your claim, they will notify either you or us. If a repayment is due then HMRC will run a security check on the selected payment method. The actual payment will follow in about 7 days.
