R&D employment costs

A small high-tech husband and wife company started working on R&D projects, in addition to various other work. So far they received wages under NIC limit plus dividends. The R&D guidance states that wages paid to employees doing both R&D and non-R&D work should be apportioned. Can the company to pay market rates for R&D work and claim it as a R&D expense in full, but low rates or nothing for non-R&D work?
