Who was the client?

TNA Electrical provide mechanical, electrical and public health solutions to all sectors of the construction industry across the UK. Since 2017, TNA Electrical have engaged in increasingly complex build projects, requiring considerable time and expenditure on up-front engineering design solutions and proof-of-concept testing.

What was the challenge?

Prior to working with Kene Partners, TNA Electrical processed their R&D claims in-house. By their own admission, they were unsure of the nuances in the legislation and if certain costs would qualify and this resulted in an overly conservative claim.

TNA Electrical were sceptical of the opportunity cost benefit they would receive from engaging with an external R&D tax specialist such as Kene Partners.

Identifying the R&D

Relevant stakeholders gathered together for a one day workshop so that Kene Partners could explain how the incentive scheme works.  They took the TNA Electrical team through the activities which can contribute towards a claim and then worked to gather the necessary technical detail. This ensured a smooth and efficient process and due to the technical expertise of the consultants working on the project, every detail of the project work that had been undertaken was captured and fully understood.

Once they had acquired all the information, a detailed technical report was written, including all of the internal eligible cotss which had been translated into R&D expenditure.

The result

“Since working with Kene Partners we have received £645,000 in tax benefits via a combination of tax reductions and refunds, all of which has strengthened our bottom line and made a tangible impact on our business. Working with Kene has also ensured that a complex process was as simple as possible for us, and crucially, that our submission to HMRC was in accordance with all necessary guidelines.”
