Management Team

Geoff Liberman

Geoff Liberman

Director

Geoff feels the R&D Tax Relief initiated by HMRC has huge opportunities for tens of thousands of businesses to increase our economy over the coming years, especially with Brexit looming.

He has spent the last three decades running his own company in the telephony and energy sector across the UK and Europe.

R&D Specialists Limited was incorporated to create awareness and take knowledge and advice to the market place regarding the enormous potential.

Geoff says, “our target by 2020 is to be helping 3,000 enterprises of all sizes to develop and grow through our knowledge and advice with the funding available from this great HMRC incentive. We hope you will be one of the companies we can help.”

Mark Joyner

Mark Joyner

Director

Mark has been building businesses across the UK and Europe since 2002. Having a technical background and IT degree Mark has a good knowledge of not just the normal business activities and what it takes to build successful companies, but also from a software development and digital marketing perspective, meaning that he can approach R&D claims from a unique mind set.

Just like the other members of the RDS team, Mark is passionate about helping companies to unlock potential financial benefits that are available to them, especially if that means the company can continue to grow and re-invest in further development and growth. Mark said “I was amazed that less than 1% of eligible UK businesses actually claimed R&D tax credits last year form HMRC, when it is something they are entitled to. I look forward to making more businesses aware of how to claim and to helping them to maximise their claims.”

Business Manager

Ray is passionate about helping innovative companies develop and grow through raising their awareness of the financial support available.

He has spent the last 20 years helping companies expand across UK and Europe using his business development experience in the Property, Energy and Telephony sector.

Ray Says, “There is a huge opportunity for companies, big and small, in all areas of the UK, to claim what they are due from this great incentive.

If you have developed new products, processes, services or enhanced existing projects, you could be eligible for a substantial cash payment or Corporation Tax reduction”

Engineering Manager

David has spent the last 5 years continuing to grow an already successful engineering company. After working up through the ranks he knows all to important the need for great customer service and quality of product.

” I have been through the process of claiming my R and D tax credits and throughout the process, dealing with several companies, I always felt isolated without the necessary support. I wanted to be part of something that can help small and medium enterprises prosper, and the best way of doing that is sharing our expertise and passion. Every member of our team hold the same core values, service, quality, integrity.”
