R&D Ebook Cover

Did you invest in R&D? Find out if you qualify for tax relief and let’s get your money back.

Many companies aren’t aware that they’re eligible to claim tax relief from the R&D tax credits scheme, which is an HMRC incentive to boost innovation in the UK.

If your company is contributing to research and development in the fields of science and technology, you could be eligible to claim back a percentage of your R&D-related expenditure.

Are you put off by the thought of spending your valuable time wading through paperwork to make claims?

We get it. That’s why we’ve created this ebook to give you the lowdown concisely. You’ll learn what you need to do to make your R&D tax credits claim, how to make it easier, and how to optimise your claim so you can successfully claim as much as possible.


No claim, no gain.

Don’t leave money on the table. R&D tax credits are an easy way to boost your cash flow. Learn how it works and if you qualify.
