Research & Development Tax Reliefs

Our dedicated team advise companies on the UK’s R&D Tax Relief programme and have successfully identified more than £100m of qualifying expenditure and claimed back more than £45m for our clients since 2011.

The R&D Tax Relief programme should be viewed as a potential source of valuable funding for any company in key sectors such as Manufacturing, Digital, Oil & Gas, Construction, Automotive and Aerospace, Software, Food & Drink (including Brewers) and Not for Profit.

We are not simply an R&D “boutique” – our background is accountancy and tax, but we have added experience of science and technology (for example, our Head of R&D, Hollie Thompson, has a degree in Biomedical Sciences). This allows us to facilitate claims that not only capture the cost, but use the reliefs in the most beneficial way.

Our claims provide a complete solution and will address complexities such as:

  • The interaction with group relief rules
  • Subcontractor/Subcontractee relationships
  • Grand funding and subsidised R&D
  • Interaction with other reliefs which can prove more valuable (e.g. Land Remediation Relief or Capital Allowances)
  • Loss carry back claims
  • Patent Box Reliefs
  • Creative Sector Reliefs 
  • Accounting principles for Intangible Assets and/or Expenditure Credits
  • Advance assurance

We can also advise on how the reliefs interact with other reliefs which can prove more valuable in certain circumstances, such as Land Remediation Reliefs or Enhanced Capital Allowances.

We have successfully claimed for companies in a wide range of sectors, including:

  • Manufacturing
