The UK government has an ambitious target to increase total investment in research and development. R&D tax incentives have a key role in supporting this investment by supplementing the costs of innovation.

In this constantly evolving research and development environment, our team can help you streamline the R&D claim process and manage the risks and quality of your claim.

The government wants to make sure that approved incentives remain fit for purpose and that the UK remains a competitive location for cutting edge research. Our senior led, industry experienced team is aware of HMRC topical and evolving areas, and can help you develop and support an accurate, robust and efficient claim from start to finish.

Our experience and insight

In addition to our knowledge of what is required for supporting claim documentation, we leverage our significant experience to help optimise the claim across developing technology frontiers, transformation projects and cutting edge product design, production and deployment.
