The MPA Group
Business carries risk, innovation carries even greater risk. But there are ways to manage that risk and bring stability to your organisation.
Will slashing your Corporation Tax bill help investment? Does a patent offer a viable tax break? Could a company share scheme help you retain valuable staff? What funding is available?
In working with hundreds of clients, The MPA Group has seen the transformation that follows a big tax rebate under the R&D Tax Credits scheme. How structuring employee rewards not only ensures staff motivation, but is tax efficient too. And that factoring in government incentives allows a company to grow.
The MPA Group is a team of specialist analysts and expert accountants with vast experience in industry - often as business owners themselves. Our Technical Director is a government adviser. We offfer proactive advice, when it's needed.
With twenty million pounds clawed back under the R&D Tax Credits scheme alone, it's a success story we're repeating with Patent Box, company share schemes (including EMI) and other aspects of funding.
Your entitlement: R&D Tax Relief and Credits
The starting point for any company investing in new products and services is the R&D Tax Credits Scheme. We encourage you to avoid a timid claim for R&D Tax Credits, but rather seek one that fairly represents the risk your company has faced in its investment. The national average claim to HMRC is £41,000. The MPA Group average is £72,000.
What sets us apart is a specialist team of R&D Tax advisers who work to ensure this tax relief can be maximised far into the future. With the scheme committed until 2032, smart directors are making sure they build it into their strategy for growth.
Too many firms rely on accountants who never leave the office. Others rely purely on engineers without any accountancy expertise. The MPA Group harnesses the best of both: analysts and accountants working together.
The huge breadth of experience of our analysts counts when they visit your workshop, factory or studio. It is not just engineer speaking to engineer, but innovator to innovator. By seeing clients' work first hand, they spot every aspect of activity to make the largest possible claim to HMRC.
With our unique insight into this complicated area of tax law, we ensure you get the most from your claims. Our positive working relationship with HMRC helps us handle the entire process and shield you from enquiries. We've never had a claim rejected.
Our Technical Director, Mike Price, advises the government on the R&D Tax Credits scheme and how to apply it fairly. (More here)
Cutting tax bills, supporting business
Our specialists also work to de-mystify all aspects of funding, accountancy or company share schemes. Did you know, for instance, that patents now offer one of the most generous tax breaks? (See Patent Box) Or that seeking a patent has become simpler and much, much less costly?
There are up to 50 different solutions for innovative companies wanting to provide company share schemes for their employees. Our nationally recognised authority, Emma Wise, can assist with an EMI scheme, or another share solution.
You’re guaranteed a bespoke service that suits your needs. Too often, schemes are a one-size-fits-all approach. Our accountancy team is also a valuable resource: whether you need to review all aspects of your accounts and auditing, or to consult an expert from time to time.
