Research & Development Tax Relief

Get ahead of your competition by claiming tax relief for research and development (R&D)

Claim your R&D relief in a swift, clear, and correct manner with our R&D Calculation Tool.

The R&D Calculation Tool is a web-based application facilitating the management of R&D tax relief information and cost record files. The application reviews and processes the baseline data from the client, assists us with preparing and approving deliverables, and allows us to share personal information in the most secure way possible. The application transforms the outputs into a clear format corresponding to the legislative expectations of the tax authorities.

What can the tool do?

The R&D Calculation Tool is a web-based application used to prepare the R&D tax relief. It facilitates efficient processing of the information and cost records provided by you, the client. The data is then revised through dozens of built-in controls which are used to generate automatic outputs as required by legislation. Therefore, the process of preparing your R&D deduction is fully automated ‒ from our first meeting all the way to you receiving our outputs.
