Is this for you?

R&D claim preparation is a technically-demanding process. Yet, as a form of self-assessment, the sector is only partially regulated. This can result in poor claim quality, leading to errors, enquiries, and penalties from HMRC.

The tax and technical expertise within our team is what allows us to deliver consistently outstanding results for our clients. With our help, we can confidently take your innovation to the next level through the government’s R&D incentives.

Can we Enhance your R&D claim?

Our Enhance service can help if:

  • You’ve previously claimed R&D tax credits
  • Your claims are usually done in-house, by your accountant or another R&D provider
  • You want to ensure you’re getting the full benefit that accurately rewards your investment in innovation

If you’ve never claimed R&D tax credits before or want to know if you’re eligible, check out our Launch service for first-time claims.
