What does R&D stand for?

R&D stands for Research and Development.  R&D is the process businesses of all sizes, inventors and Governments undertake when trying to improve products, services, systems and devices of all kinds.

If your business has invested in trying to improve what it does in a new way within your industry, and you’re a Limited company (regardless of size), then you may be able to claim providing you have been investing in eligible business projects.  

We provide a fully managed, indemnified process to safely optimise your yield under this complex incentive. 

We limit your time involved to just a few hours so that you can get on with doing what you do best, running your company.

R&D Tax Credits Example

Successful R&D claims can see a company recover between 25% and 33.5% of their eligible project spend back including employees’ wages and pensions costs, cost of consumables, software and more besides. It’s easy to see how the figures quickly scale in your company’s favour.

HMRC will award your company between 25p and 33.5p in the pound back for money spent on qualifying R and D projects. In other words, for every £100,000 of spend you can expect to recover between £25,000 and £33,500 subject to eligibility criteria and your own circumstances. This valuable monetary benefit can be back in your business within just six to nine weeks from our final report being submitted to HMRC.

Retrospective R&D Claims

The Constantly changing legislation along with the complexity of R&D tax relief means many businesses that may be conducting eligible R&D through their routine, day-to-day work are simply unaware they may be able to claim...

Up until the spring budget 2021 losses could be carried back for a period of two years. 

The recent extension period announced by the Rt. Honourable Rishi Sunak means that losses can now be carried backwards for a further year which means that if you have not yet claimed R&D tax relief, now is a very good time to. 

Sadly many companies continue to miss out on a valid claim due to a lack of awareness of the incentive and what qualifies and what doesn't.
