A large technology business
Whilst the clients team continued to develop and innovate new products, we helped implement a system that minimised the effort required to capture the qualifying R&D activity and associated expenditure so that the claim for R&D relief was maximised.
An automotive investor
We helped develop and agree an R&D claims process for our client. This was agreed with HMRC. The process effectively fixed the typical R&D percentage for each development function, depending on the type of project/programme being undertaken. HMRC agreed that the percentages need only be revisited every few years. This has automated the process enabling future claims to be carried out in-house.
A global engineering company
R&D projects covered Environmental Control (Air Systems), Life Support, Hydraulics, and Electronic Control & Data Systems. As a large number of projects were undertaken each year we used a categorisation process which the company could run in-house in future periods. Claims have been agreed by HMRC for many years without any issues.
A small technology company
This business had an extensive R&D programme and needed to understand the interactions of claiming the SME R&D credit with claiming grants and other funding. We advised them on these issues and helped the company claim a cash credit of over £2 million for one year.
A large pharmaceutical company
We advised the group on the R&D regimes and grants available across the world to help them understand the optimal locations for their R&D operations.
