What is R&D?
Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase bounded about before. Nodding along as an industry seasoned pro but secretly wondering if, or how, it might apply to you, but not feeling able to ask – we’ve all been there.
Like most industries, there is a tendency to abbreviate anything and everything that can possibly be abbreviated and to assume that everybody knows exactly what they’re taking about. Research and Development probably isn’t what you picture in your head when you hear it. It isn’t just long white coats and Bunsen burners or bespectacled geeks writing code in a dark room.
It’s tackling climate change by building greener products and buildings. It’s automating processes, developing ai, making homes smarter, making things faster, stronger, cheaper; better. It’s any of those things and a thousand and one more. It is for businesses who solve problems and make things better than they were. Most importantly, it is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

How we work
R&D is by its very nature a technical subject. So HMRC require a quite specific methodology in order to evaluate a claim. Our 4 step process enables us to maximise your claim value by not missing any of the key information that exists within your company while keeping your workload light and your stress minimal. We take the pain and the strain, out of the claim.
We do this in 4 steps.
