The Brief

The company is constantly making changes to its software offering and developing new ways to analyse data. We identified that the work being undertaken by the company could qualify for R&D tax credits and provided some guidance to the client, who then appointed us to do calculations and reports.

How we helped

We confirmed that the projects the client was undertaking would qualify for R&D tax credits and provided advice relating to the costs that could be included in a claim.

We prepared the necessary R&D report and calculations in accordance with HMRC guidance and obtained the following cash repayments from HMRC:

2015 £14,474
2016 £34,389
2017 £45,429

The cash is used for the development of the software and the business.
