If we spot the potential to enhance any claims from the last two years, we can re-submit on your behalf, giving your business an additional cash boost.
R&D legislation is dense and daunting. We’ll use our technical firepower to determine if all qualifying activities are accounted for. Our R&D tax specialists will also check for wider opportunities across your business to enhance your claim.
Poor quality claims can increase the risk of an enquiry or penalty from HMRC. If the relevant expenditure cannot be validated, you risk losing money on your R&D benefit. We’ll assess to see if your claim can hold up to HMRC scrutiny.
Although largely unregulated as a form of self-assessment, R&D claim preparation is a technically-demanding process. If you’re using a consultancy, we can assess the minimum acceptable criteria to ensure you’re getting value for money.
Many companies waste time on unnecessary parts of the claims process or lack a solid methodology that is both transferrable and able to capture all relevant costs. We’ll review your process to see where efficiencies can be made.
