Research & Development Claim Settled!

Category: Taxation - Posted On: Mar 7 2019


Our team recently completed a Research & Development (R&D) claim for a client based in the West of Scotland, resulting in a client saving of £23,400!

Our client is a University spin out company specialising in the design and development of tactile sensory technology.

During the year of claim, the company was involved in several qualifying projects, including the design and commercial development of a tactile glove to exactly measure pressure distribution over a user’s hand. This included sophisticated electronics programming, the requirement for miniaturised circuitry and a significant amount of trial and error to be able to assess the level of tolerable error. Further developments were undertaken to provide an integrated electronics platform for a large number of sensors and to produce a sensory piece of kit to be four times as powerful as any competitor.

R&D tax credits provide a valuable cash flow injection for eligible companies. They then have the enviable problem of how to reinvest it for the benefit of the company.
