Research & Development Claim Settled!

Category: Taxation - Posted On: Mar 14 2019


Our team recently completed two Research & Development (R&D) claims for an engineering client based in the East of Scotland, resulting in a client saving of £156,386!

Our client is researching and developing wind energy technology for offshore installation. The work performed by our client is all pre-revenue and is primarily engineering conceptual work and design studies. The turbine and infrastructure design being pursued would result in lower build, installation and maintenance costs over the life-span of the turbine.

In the years under review, our client designed, constructed and tested a prototype two-bladed turbine. This prototype was vastly different to any other turbine of a similar scale. Design certifications were obtained following from this proof of concept. Simultaneously, other workflows were researched and developed for the next phases of the overall development.

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.

We have a 100% success rate for R&D claims, with every claim submitted having benefited the claimant company. We have completed over 300 claims and saved over £16 million for our clients, through a proactive approach in identifying and completing relevant claims. We can assess your eligibility then prepare a claim for you, if relevant. Your involvement need not take more than three or four hours and the benefits can be huge.
