ABOUT our R&D TAX CREDITS services in newport

What are R&D Tax Credits and How can They help your company?

The R&D incentive for businesses was first introduced in 2000. 

They are part of a rewarding scheme ran by HMRC to incentivise and encourage businesses in every sector to invest in building new or improved products and services

Businesses that have spent company money making appreciable improvements to products and services over the last two open tax periods can recover as much as 33% of their qualifying expenditure back.

Large sums of peoples wages, utility bills, NI contributions, subcontractor costs, software costs and more can all be recovered and so you can see the figures quickly add up in your company's favour.

Some businesses whose day-to-day operations may signify a claim sadly aren't claiming due to a lack of understanding surrounding the incentive. This is down to a general misunderstanding of what qualifies as R&D.

All UK limited companies may be able to claim regardless of industry.

"Our industry had a 'spot check' by HMRC. Naturally, I was very worried.  I can't thank the team at Hamilton Wood & Co. enough.  They dealt with HMRC directly and  I must say I was impressed with the speed and efficiency that the matter was dealt with. Our claim was approved and we were delighted with the support from Chris at Hamilton Wood throughout.  I couldn't have done it on my own."

Fast and efficient R&D claims process.

"As a business owner, I very rarely get a spare moment.  I was encouraged to talk to Simon at Hamilton Wood and Co. to see if the improvements to our back-office functions and processes might qualify.  After a quick conversation by phone I was assured that whilst not all my activities did qualify, that some of them did and we could move forward on them. I was involved for less than 2hrs over a 12 week period and got a playout in no time at all."
