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.
