R&D Tax Credits

If your company makes innovative use of science or technology to develop or significantly enhance products, services or business processes, you may be entitled to claim research & development tax credits to help offset some of the costs of your investment.

The scheme has been in place since 2000 and is designed to encourage UK businesses to invest in R&D. The benefits for those claiming can be significant.

The Government have been steadily increasing the value of this tax credit over recent years but many still don't claim.

A recent HMRC report shows that only 15,930 businesses claimed in 2013. This suggests that many businesses are missing out.

If you can answer "yes" to these 4 questions then there's a good chance you are eligible:

With the average claim now £46k it is worth taking 15 minutes out of your busy day to see if you could claim.

How we have helped others

Software Development Business claim R&D tax credits

The client was not aware of the scheme or that as a software developer they might be eligible to claim. We quickly confirmed their eligibility to claim for the last 2 financial years.

We helped the client to:

We did all this on a "no-win, no fee" basis, the client paying a % of their claim on completion of the claim.

The client received a cash credit from HMRC which has allowed them to recruit additional staff to take advantage of opportunities out in the market.

Their accountant has a greater appreciation of this specialised tax benefit and has subsequently been able to offer our services to the benefit of other clients.

"We have introduced several of our clients to RandD Tax. They have been delighted with the efficient service and support in maximising their claims. We find RandD Tax responsive and they work really well, alongside us, re-enforcing the service we offer to our clients…We have found on average R&D specialist firms charge between 20% to 40% of the tax recovered, whereas the RandD charge is much lower"
