SRA Standards and Regulations guidance
A professional practice, who having experienced significant growth in its business, sought a more efficient way of working. The firms work is complicated but also process driven. Having assessed the market for an ‘off the shelf’ solution, it was apparent that none of the available software packages had the capability to create personalised working practices in an electronic environment that encompassed all of the required enhancements. As a result, the Company undertook a large scale, complicated internal project to develop software to create electronic workflows, replacing the previously largely paper based system.
The project was costly as it required the company to invest in a significant number of man-hours. With limited funding available to the company, they sought access to R&D tax benefits to subsidise the cost of the project conducted by a subsidiary company to be within the R&D tax relief regime.
We identified a number of aspects of the development project on which R&D tax benefits could be claimed and we then helped them prepare their R&D claim.
To date the firm has received £187,000 of R&D tax credits from HMRC, with an estimated additional £60,000 due in
respect of the final phase of the project.
