Got a question?

What happens in the consultation call?

I’ll ask a few questions about your company’s activities to establish whether you’re eligible to claim R&D tax credits. I’ll outline the process and what to expect from making a claim before we take the next steps - information gathering, evidence, report writing and making the claim. Ready to book your call?

How much does it cost to make an R&D claim?

There is no set fee for an R&D tax credit claim - I work on a % fee basis, ensuring you keep the majority of the reward.

I have an accountant, can’t they just help me?

Whilst your accountant can advise on a multitude of corporate and personal tax scenarios, you need a specialist tax adviser if you’re really going to maximise your R&D cash benefit. The smallest details can make significant differences to the size and strength of your claim - my reports are technically robust and meticulously analyse your project to ensure you receive the cash benefit you deserve.

How do I know if my project's activities are eligible for R&D tax credits?

If you’re set up as a UK Limited Company and undertake problem solving work with a technical focus that deviates from available solutions in your industry then it’s worth exploring whether what you do qualifies.  Your consultation call will establish this.

I don’t have time to work on an R&D submission. How can you help?

You’ll need a few hours to commit upfront in order to relay all of the correct information and provide supporting documentation but from here, I’ll handle the report-writing and financial analysis. There will be a few things I’ll need to check with you but this will be focused and specific points.

Can I make a claim if my project isn’t finished?

Yes. R&D tax credits reward activities that seek to make advancements in science and technology, so even if you never complete your project, you can still claim for efforts in trying. Let's talk!
