It's just not important right now.

The additional cash flow can help with your marketing budgets, R&D allocation, help you hire a new team member - You can actually use the savings as you want to help with the important issues you are encountering.

Is claiming R&D tax risky?

As R&D tax relief operates within the tax system, there is an element of risk.

It’s our job to ensure your claim meets all the criteria and provides sufficient information to HMRC to help avoid enquiries.

We reduce the risk of an enquiry using our years of expertise.

It's complicated to claim R&D tax relief.

Yes it is! And that’s why we exist. We hold your hand through the whole process.

I don't want to get stuck in a contract.

We know the feeling…that is why we do not have fixed term contracts.

If you feel our service is below par…then you are free to leave.

I don't see the potential for ROI.

The average R&D claim is worth £13,000 per year and it takes approximately 1.5 hours of your time for your first claim.

I can get a cheaper version somewhere else.

Yes, you probably can.

There are three main types of R&D tax consultancies - do it yourself, do it for you and do it with you.
