Is there any license issues that need to be taken in consideration, any fees to pay by the company? I know there are answers to this in the FAQs but I didn't really understand the legal language. Could you therefore just give me concrete answers?

R is licensed under the GPL version 2, a pretty common license.  You 
should be able to get legal advice on it internally at your company.  If 
you ask on a forum like this, you'll get lots of advice, but some of it 
will likely be wrong.  I don't want to add to that, so I won't give any 
other than "ask internally".
