Why you should work with us

Specialist Team

R&D is all that we do, unlike many organisations who have a broad knowledge about lots of tax schemes and incentives, we solely focus on R&D and advise companies on how to successfully claim all R&D tax credits they are due.

Simple Transparent Process

We know how busy you are running your business, so we have a simple process that only requires a couple of hours of your time in total, and then we’ll do all the rest of the work ready for submission to HMRC for you. Let us do the leg work for you.

Maximising Your R&D Tax Claim

To maximise all available R&D you can claim for requires an R&D specialist, whose sole purpose is to analyse and identify all elements you can claim for. With companies that offer as an add-on service, most don’t create and submit an R&D report to justify the claim figures – an R&D report is essential.

Our Fee Is Only Due Upon Your Successful Claim

We don’t charge day rates or have hidden fees, we simply create your R&D claim and supply your accountant with the claim details ready for submission to HMRC.


We have helped businesses across a range of sectors claim R&D tax credits for their innovative work.

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.
