With our involvement the client was successful in their first ever claim helping them to receive a cash refund well over five figures for each claim year which they were able to reinvest into their product offering.
We were referred to this specialist in web application development company about claiming R&D tax credits on work already carried out. This client had extensive experience in building bespoke solutions, mobile commerce and e-recruitment. Their projects involved conceptualising, planning, meticulous code development and testing.
Need for Funding
Our client had been informed by their accountant that R&D tax credits were not worth applying for, and were surprised when our initial calculations based on their most relevant projects countered this. The client had actually conducted high level of research and development during the two year claim period, and in order to continue creating innovative products and remain competitive it needed increased funds.
As our client had conducted a number of projects relevant to the claim period, we identified qualifying projects and optimised the claim. Following a scoping meeting with managers, and an overview analysis of the most relevant projects, we carried out a number of interviews with technical staff. All told, the company devoted no more than a day to collating archived information required to both refresh their memories and allow us to delve deeper into the technical challenges of each project.
Consequently the technical report we prepared strongly supported the client’s innovative development activities and was less time consuming for the client than would otherwise have been possible.
We guided the client in every step of the claim right from introduction of the system through to the submission of the claim to HMRC. Even after the claim was submitted, we kept in regular contact with the HMRC and our client about its progress.
