Are you maximising your R&D Tax Claim?

OK, so you’re ahead of many other businesses as you’re already making a R&D Tax Claim, but could you be claiming more?

At R&D Tax Claims we know that for a business to maximise the value of its R&D Tax Claim, the submission needs to be supported by:

  1. a thorough understanding of the HMRC scheme;
  2. a good working relationship with the relevant tax office;
  3. a thorough understanding of relevant (R&D) expenditure;
  4. good report writing skills – bringing everything together in the correct format!

Whilst your accountant may be OK with 1 and 2 above, unless they really understand your industry and have relevant manufacturing and engineering experience, they are unlikely to be able to identify all relevant expenditure, often resulting in an under-claim.


It’s essential you work with an R&D Tax Claim Expert, but also one who has relevant experience of your industry…


At R&D Tax Claims, we recognise that a combination of expertise and skillsets helps achieve the best outcomes for our tax claims clients.

  • Tried and tested process – our process is a robust one which ensures we fully investigate all R&D opportunities for our clients, create comprehensive submissions for HMRC and provide support throughout the claims process until businesses receive their rebate.
  • Team – as specialists in engineering and manufacturing, we need to understand our clients’ businesses completely, so we have a team of experienced engineers who work alongside tax specialists who between them understand all aspects of the R&D tax relief schemes.


The Benefits of Working with an R&D Tax Expert

  • Our engineers can identify what is (and isn’t!) R&D with an in-depth understanding of what the HMRC scheme identifies as HMRC, so you don’t need to worry;
  • Our accountants understand how HMRC work making the submission of your tax claim as stress-free as possible;
  • Combined engineering and tax knowledge is essential; this ensures your business can maximise the claim potential, but also reduces the potential of claims being queried due to them being unrealistic.

Perhaps you’re not claiming R&D Tax Relief?

Many companies in the UK carry out research and development (R & D), but they don’t always recognise that they are doing R & D or even that they can claim tax credits for.

Recognising that a business is carrying out R & D activities may be the initial question for a company, but once this is combined with the need to fully understand the HMRC scheme it can open a number of questions, which can see businesses not maximising their claims, or putting off claiming for their R & D altogether.

This can mean they are not making the most of the available R & D tax relief, something that can save businesses thousands.

Overcoming these challenges is not impossible – and with the right expert support businesses will be able to fully benefit from the scheme. Get in touch to start making the most of your R&D Tax Claim.
