Tax Credit Consulting

The R&D Tax credit programme provides significant assistance to qualifying companies who are engaged in R&D activities as deemed under the guidelines set out by HMRC. The eligible activities under this scheme are wide reaching, allowing organisations from a variety of industries to take advantage of the financial opportunities. The programme not only provides tax credits on R&D expenditures but also an additional 130% uplift or super deduction providing a 230% total tax recovery which, for many companies can amount to a great deal of financial assistance at critical times of growth.

Our Services

We aim to minimise any disruption to your technical team to allow you to focus on your critical business activities. Our expertise at organising the necessary documentation and preparing the technical project descriptions as accepted by the programme, are aimed at minimising any scrutiny to ensure a smooth and painless experience. Many organisations find the process involved with submitting their own claim daunting. The burden on key and technical and financial personnel to decipher the R&D tax legislation, understand the intricacies and be aware of the subtle policies can result in a substantial under-claim, unproductive use of time or most critically, a rejection of the entire claim.

  • Preparation of Technical Reports

      We will gather all necessary documentation and supporting evidence that qualifying R&D has been undertaken by technical individuals and prepare the necessary technical project descriptions based on the rigorous guidelines set out in the programme.
