R & D Tax Credit is more than just a one-off claim

How we work

11 years' experience has helped optimise our unique and highly successful process. From new start-ups to organisations with turnovers in excess of £100m, we’ve helped companies across all sectors claim more than £180 million of tax credits.

FREE consultation meeting

The rules behind the R&D Tax Credit scheme can be complex to understand. One of our advisors will meet with you to assess whether you could qualify and – if so – how much you might receive. They’ll also explain how we work, what HMRC expects from a claim and answer any other questions you might have.

Business analysis

We all have our own view of what the term ‘R&D’ means, but the real question is, ‘what does HMRC accept as R&D?’. To answer this question, we need to understand what you do and how you do it. Our technical analysts are drawn from across the industrial spectrum; they have all worked in businesses like yours and they use their knowledge and expertise to assess which elements of your projects meet HMRC’s criteria for ‘eligible R&D’.

Numbers & narrative

Companies incur many costs in the R&D process, most of these can be claimed, but not all. We work with you to understand where you incurred costs and extract all those that qualify for relief. We also complete the checks and balances HMRC expects, to avoid the risk of nasty penalties for not taking ‘reasonable care’ when submitting a claim.

Submission & review

R&D relief is given against tax already paid or due. However, did you know that there are a number of different ways to claim this relief? To ensure our customers take full advantage of their entitlement, our tax experts compute up to 2,000 Corporation Tax calculations every year.

We were already claiming R&D Tax Relief, but since switching over to The MPA Group, we have had a smoother, more timely process with increased stability and reduced risk of HMRC queries.
