R&D Tax Credit Incentive

Small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) R&D tax relief allows companies to deduct an extra 130% of their qualifying costs from their yearly profit, as well as the normal 100% deduction, to make a total 230% deduction. Claim a tax credit if the company is loss making, worth up to 14.5% of the surrenderable loss. There are huge chances that your business is doing R&D without even realising. As an experts we determine if your activities are eligible for R&D tax relief and assist you in gaining the best results.

We do the hard work so you don't have to!

Businesses have preconceptions that they ‘don’t do’ R&D, or that it’s such a small investment that it’s not worth making a claim, but often it’s surprising how much a claim can be worth. Others are put off because they believe it’s only heavily scientific or technological projects that qualify – but that is simply not the case. As experts in R&D tax credit claims, we take a ‘step back’ to really focus clients on thinking about what R&D they carry out without even realising.

In 2017-18, HMRC paid out £4.3 billions to companies that filed a claim.
