R&D Tax Credits Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire by Award Winning Specialists Hamilton Wood & Company

Multi-award-winners - Hamilton Wood and Company-01

There are still many Companies in Stoke who feel their routine, day-to-day activities aren't eligible for a claim and are not benefitting from this relief.  It's now estimated that round 80% of businesses who could claim, haven't.

The Research and Development Incentive and it's Background

First introduced in the year 2000 by the labour Government, the R&D tax relief scheme was planned to encourage businesses to invest in developing new or improved products and services.  Since their inception in 2000, there has been over 250,000 successful claims.  A total of over £26.5 billion of R&D tax credit relief has now been claimed.

Many Companies haven't claimed due to a general lack of understanding as to what constitutes R&D.  The words 'Research and Development' often make people wrongly assume they need to be a dedicated research laboratory in order to claim. The reality however is that many Companies who could claim haven't. If your business is seeking to do something in a new and improved way, you might qualify.

"I was initially sceptical that we we're doing any R&D.  I had visions of needing to be a large scale pharma company and couldn't see where our work would qualify. Thankfully we were introduced to Chris at Hamilton Wood and after a brief discussion, we were able to pin-point areas that formed the basis of our claim.  Thank you!"

Ongoing support with complex R&D tax claims.

"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."
