News: Claim R&D Tax Credits

Posted on 5th April 2017

Recently, taking the UK by storm,  R&D Tax Credits are a tax incentive from the UK Government designed to encourage companies to invest in R&D.  They can reduce your tax bill or you can claim payable cash credits as a proportion of your R&D expenditure.  We’re here to make the process simple, providing a complete end-to-end service in claiming R&D tax credits on your behalf.

You may be surprised what qualifies!    The starting point is that you must be doing something that involves developing scientific or technological knowledge that isn’t commonly available.

For example:

–  Spending on developing new processes, products or services

– Adapting current technology to improve the performance of products and materials, or

– Advances in testing, prototype design to resolve challenges

 

This is the basic requirement but there are a variety of other criteria.   A key element is that the product or service to include in your claim is  innovative and is, at a technological level, an advance in the market. It’s our job to work with you to gather the evidence that will satisfy HMRC’s criteria, so that you don’t have to worry about interpreting the terminology. Even if the project is not successful the R&D expenditure may still qualify for relief.

 

We are Keepers Tax Services.  With 50 years of experience and with a 100% success rate,  we pride ourselves on providing a first class service.​  We operate on a no win no fee basis.  So if your claim is unsuccessful you will owe us nothing.

 

If you want to know more or have any queries please contact Max Keeping on 01444 257236 or email max@keepers.info.

Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
