We understand the importance of a streamlined methodology when it comes to undertaking innovation incentive claims. We not only use our technical knowledge and industry experience to better understand your business and identify the maximum potential benefit available to you, but also our well-established relationship with HMRC and our experience of tax legislation to ensure claims are fully auditable and compliant to the highest quality standard.
Innovation Tax specialise in helping companies access vital funding and tax incentives to enable their businesses to grow, increase profitability, reduce risk and enable further investment in R&D and capital investments.
R&D Tax Credits are designed to reward companies for their efforts in innovation to develop new or improve existing products, processes and systems.
Capital Allowances and R&D Allowances enable companies to claim back tax relief on capital expenditure, such as property acquisition, plant and machinery, refurbishments, alterations and extensions.
Patent Box is a Government initiative launched to promote investment in intellectual property by enabling companies to pay a reduced Corporation Tax rate of 10% on profits derived from patented products and/or processes.
Innovation Tax employs highly skilled and experienced specialists to ensure all claims are robust, fully maximised and completed in a timely manner, without any disruption to our clients day-to-day business activities.
How Innovation Tax incentives help your business to thrive
We meet (or call) you to discuss your business, the qualifying criteria and how they might impact on one another.
We conduct a thorough assessment to ensure your activities comply with the legislative requirements
We work closely with your key personnel to gather technical information regarding the compliant project(s) and the source financial data to support the expenditure incurred, which together forms the basis of your claim
Report compilation & review
We draft your claim report and forward you a copy for review to provide reassurance that the content is a true representation of your entitlement to claim.
QA and Submission
Once you’re happy with the draft report, we conduct a internal Quality Assurance check to ensure all legislative requirements are satisfied. You’ll then receive a copy of the final report, whilst we liaise directly with your accountant to make the formal submission to HMRC.
