You could be missing out on thousands of pounds in tax relief if you’ve created a new process, product or service or improved an existing one. Many companies are failing to claim the relief they are entitled to as they are unaware that their work qualifies. We are here to guide you.

In short, any project that seeks an advancement in knowledge or capability in a field of science or technology, seeks to resolve scientific or technological uncertainties or to improve existing processes all potentially qualify for R&D relief. The project does not necessarily need to have been successful for the claim to still qualify for the relief.

As R&D specialists we are committed to helping you claim back your tax relief, so you can focus on the important stuff – efficiently running your business.
