Our client-first approach

R&D tax credits reward the work that will define UK innovation for generations to come. We have a responsibility in making sure UK innovation continues to be built with solid roots and integrity.

Since the beginning, our focus has been on providing our clients with the best possible R&D claim service. Our clients come from a wide variety of sectors, and they love us for what we do.

  • Our team comprises engineers, science and technology PhDs, and sector specialists who will prepare the reports and claim documentation on your behalf 
  • We take the time to get to know your business; this means we’re often able to find more qualifying expenditure than other advisers
  • We are an active member of HMRC’s R&D Communication Forum and remain at the forefront of tax and legislative developments, ensuring our clients and partners get the most relevant advice and guidance
  • We have rigorous in-house quality assurance processes to ensure your claim holds up under HMRC scrutiny
  • Our fee is success-based only and includes support through any questions or enquiry from HMRC

A global company with local roots

Our technical expertise is what allows us to deliver consistently outstanding results for our clients. Whilst our HQ is based in London, our team are spread across all corners of the UK and beyond. By leveraging this dynamic, we foster an enriching culture that collectively celebrates collective growth, at the heart. When we succeed, we succeed together.

Values we live by

Our values are our commitment to our clients and to our employees. They represent our core philosophy and are reflected in how we conduct ourselves as individuals and as a company.

One step ahead

The importance of our role in UK innovation inspires us and gives us energy, driving us to go that little bit further every day. Our commitment to our clients means taking the time to get to know them and their business – it means we are always willing to do that little bit more to support you.

Do the right thing

We have high standards, not just in what we do but how we do it. Having a conscience means being conscious – not only professionally, but socially and environmentally. We proudly support diversity in UK science and technology; but we won’t work with companies or individuals whose ethics are dubious.

Working as one

Our team brings together a diverse range of skills and expertise; we believe it’s our different strengths that together make us all smarter and stronger. The relationships we continue to build are developed through consistency and understanding. When we succeed, we succeed together.

Ready when you are

We work hard to stay ahead of the curve, maintaining the highest standards in a fast-paced environment. Our talented team comprises engineers, science and technology PhDs, and chartered tax advisers – ready to take your innovation to the next level through the government’s R&D incentives.


We’re determined to play our part in creating a better world for all. Find out more about our Kene4Change initiative and see how you can get involved.

We really go the distance for our people: we want everyone at Kene Partners to feel supported and to be the best they can be, as professionals and as people.

As we continue to grow, it’s important for us to keep building an inclusive and diverse culture, with a combined desire to do great work for our clients – always. If this resonates with you, we’d love you to join our team.

We want to be brilliant in everything we do and that begins with our people. Put simply, this means bringing together diverse experiences, skills and backgrounds to form an exceptionally talented team.
