Many technology and media companies have not realised the full extent of the R&D tax credits available to them. By taking the time to get to know your business, our R&D team can identify R&D activities, help maximise your R&D tax credits, and also help spot other tax and business opportunities.

Why make a claim?

  • For a profitable company: to reduce its corporation tax bill.
  • For a loss-making company: to claim cash from HMRC in the form of R&D tax credits or repayable research and developments expenditure credits.
  • To improve the company's cashflow.
  • To make the company's balance sheet look healthier.
  • To increase the company's reserves.

How we can help

  • Research and development claims
  • Patent box advice
  • Business strategy support
  • Royalty and licencing advice and audit
