R&D Tax Specialists

Helping innovative, growing businesses claim tax refunds for development work

We specialise in helping businesses of all sizes claim tax relief under the HMRC’s Research and Development Tax Credit scheme.

Initial claims can go back two years from the company’s financial year-end.

In our experience 95% of claims involve ‘development’ rather than ‘research’.

Our qualified engineers have a background in engineering and software development gained working for companies including Ford, Siemens, Toyota, Rolls-Royce, Airbus, Westland and GSK, as well as a wide range of growing SME clients.

Our proven and practical approach supports HMRC’s requirements and is designed to minimise the amount of time you need to spend in making your claim.

The Research and Development Tax Credit scheme was launched in 2000 and is the government’s largest single funding scheme in support of R&D in the business sector. Since the scheme was launched, in excess of 240,000 claims have been made, and over £21.4 billion in tax relief has been claimed.

To date we have helped over 200 companies in a wide range of sectors claim more than £17 million in R&D Tax Credits.
