How we work with our clients

1. Eligibility Assessment

1. Eligibility Assessment

We recommend an initial telephone consultation with our technical director to assess if you meet the criteria. This no-obligation introductory call typically lasts around 20 minutes. To ensure a seamless experience, we will assign you a technical specialist experienced in your industry sector. They will guide you through the process in detail and remain your sole point of contact for the entire duration of your R&D claim.

2. Information Gathering

2. Information Gathering

Our technical consultant will meet with key staff involved in your R&D project to gather necessary information that will be used to determine the extent to which your projects and activities are eligible under the R&D scheme. Once we have identified the activities that can be included in the claim, we will use the financial information that has been provided to us to determine the associated qualifying expenditure. We will then map these two elements together in such a way that will maximise the value of your claim.

3. Preparation of R&D claim

With over 15 years of experience and a solid working relationship with HMRC, we have honed our skills in presenting the finances and formulating reports to meet the scheme requirements.
