Example Scenarios

  • R&D claim compliance and process improvement

    A company who self-claims R&D tax requires a professional who can work with their finance and tax teams to solve certain complexities of the R&D tax claim, and possibly develop better internal processes to improve the efficiency of preparing that claim and their compliance effectiveness.

    R&D Tax Incentive
  • R&D tax incentive assistance

    A start-up company rapidly investing in development requires a R&D Tax expert to assist with a series of discrete tasks during the claim process, such as writing claim documentation, calculating the relevant R&D expenditure and helping to compile evidence to support the claim.
