Are you using technology in the agricultural sector to improve efficiency and profitability?
Farming may not conjure up images of an industry at the forefront of R&D and yet British farmers and agricultural related businesses are some of the most innovative in the world, developing new techniques and tools in their quest to improve overall performance in this essential sector. Unfortunately many in this industry are unaware that they are eligible for an R&D tax claim.

Why Work With Libcus?
The R&D tax relief scheme is extremely rewarding but also a highly technical and complex process. With extensive experience working within this field, we are uniquely positioned to help agricultural companies and related industries claim for their innovation.
At Libcus, we take a supportive approach to guiding our clients through the entire claims process. We offer regular visits to your premises (where required) to discuss and review R&D activities to ensure we maximise your benefit. Additionally, we undertake as much of the R&D claim work as possible from identifying eligible projects, through to writing technical narratives, and calculating difficult R&D calculations.
We take time to assess your business and would never submit a claim without being confident of its outcome. However our support doesn’t end when we submit your claim. Our fee structure includes full enquiry support should your claim be investigated by HMRC.
