We are proud to currently work with over 250 UK accountants to assist their clients with R&D claims

The team at RDS worked hard for over 9 months with a software development company to create a secure ‘web based’ Partner & Client 'HUB' which can allow our partners in just a few clicks to see the status of their client's claims as well as to establish if their clients have qualifying R&D activity.

We offer all of our partners access to our HUB – ask for a demo to see how it could work for you!

Our Claim Process


An initial phone call or face-to-face meeting is typically the first step, so that one of our Business Development Managers (BDM’s) can discuss potentially qualifying R&D projects with you & explain the activities that can be included within an R&D claim.


Following a successful eligibility check, our team will officially engage with you & request the straightforward financial information required from you and your accountant in order to analyse the R&D costs. A report call / meeting will also be carried out so that a justification report can be created.

Report & Sign Off

Once the claim financials and report have been completed, our team will liaise with you to discuss the final claim and get feedback from you & a confirmation that all eligible activity has been included. Following the review and claim sign off, we will submit the information to your accountant.

CT600 Submitted

One of the benefits of our approach is that we don’t tread on the toes of your accountant by taking over as your ‘agent’ with HMRC. We pass over the completed claim info to your accountant so that they can alter your corporation tax return (CT600) to include the figures, and also attach the report for HMRC.

Funds Received

By creating a comprehensive justification report & detailing the figures included within the claim, the process of HMRC reviewing the submitted info and approving the claim should be quite quick - typically taking 4-6 weeks. You will receive your benefit directly from HMRC, we then purely bill you upon success.

Frequently asked questions

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we get regarding making an R&D tax relief claim. If you have any more questions please contact our team.

We apply a straightforward, easily comprehensible process to all of our client claims. Our team will work hard to ensure that your claim meets the stringent requirements set by HMRC, from analysing and calculating the claim value to creating the research and development justification report.

You will have an initial telephone call or visit from one of our team to discuss whether your company meets the R&D claim requirements, before we progress the claim on a no win no fee basis.

A member of our specialist team will visit your business to gather relevant data and get a full understanding of your operation. The specialist advisor will scope your business in detail, identifying the extent of your qualifying activity and expenditure thus ensuring that we are able to maximise your claim.

The RDS team will produce a detailed R&D report, describing R&D activity within your business and justifying how this meets HMRC guidelines, along with a summary of qualifying R&D spend. We will then send the report to your accountant with instructions for submitting the claim to HMRC via the CT600 ‘Corporation Tax: Company Tax Return’ claim form.

It usually takes 28 days for HMRC to process the claim following submission of the CT600, after which you will receive your benefit.

In the case of an HMRC query, one of our specialists will respond immediately to ensure minimal delays in your claim.
