Who was the client?

Imageco is a leading print company, recognised nationally for their large format printing, signage, and exhibition displays. Imageco regularly finds itself researching and developing new materials, media, and processes in order to reduce turnaround time, increase sustainability, and push the boundaries of printing and display works for their clients.

What was the challenge?

Imageco were introduced to Kene Partners through their industry association, FESPA UK Association, and hadn’t previously heard of the government R&D incentive scheme.  They hoped that if they could receive some benefit, it would help them in their creative and innovative goals.  They recognised that by working with a trusted R&D tax advisory service, it was a risk-free decision to claim.

Identifying the R&D

Kene Partners made a site visit to Imageco and took the time to understand all aspects of the business. The team looked at the types of projects Imageco were involved in and demonstrated that there were grounds to submit an R&D tax claim. Kene Partners set out the process in a clear and concise way to ensure a smooth and efficient process.  Once the necessary technical and financial information had been gathered, a detailed and robust report was written in line with the legislation. Imageco reviewed the report before it was submitted to HMRC.

The result

“Once Kene had compiled the report and the claim sent off, I then asked what they expected the figure to be. When the email came through I choked on my coffee, then thought there was a typing error – £77,000! Safe to say I did not expect the sum we received.”

Imageco have continued to engage Kene Partners to submit their claims and the money they receive has given them the confidence to continue to push the boundaries of what they do.
