R&D is a broad field, and the industries that qualify are broader still. Below is a non-exhaustive list of some of the areas where we have identified some very strong claims and some simple true or false statements that help to find where R&D work might be taking place without you knowing.
Use the pages and list below and if your industry isn’t present, it in no way means that you don’t qualify – just that we haven’t created a checklist for you yet.
If that’s the case, then get in touch using the contact form at the bottom of the page and we can work out if you are doing any R&D together.
Our 4 Step Claim Process
R&D is by its very nature a technical subject. So HMRC require a quite specific methodology in order to evaluate a claim. Our 4 step process enables us to maximise your claim value by not missing any of the key information that exists within your company while keeping your workload light and your stress minimal. We take the pain and the strain, out of the claim.
This is a short 30 minute interview. We provide a little R&D background but mostly we just listen to you talk about your business and your project, occasionally popping up with helpful questions.
After we have looked at the accounts we can produce the skeleton of the claim.
This internal process is completed when we present you with the rough what, where and how much proposal.
It’s at this point we usually get an audible ‘Yes!’ from you.
Depending on the size and complexity of the claim, this is where collaboration will mostly take place.
We will interview your staff and liaise with you about the finer points of your project, ensuring every pound is accounted for and that we are fully equipped to handle the great big machine that we call HMRC.
Once you are happy with all of the information we submit your claim for you and HMRC will process the documents before paying the money directly into your account.
This is typically a 28 day process.
