Why chose a specialist over the ‘Big 4’?

Operating within a fast-paced marketplace, research and development remains a key focus for NeuroSolutions with the business already claiming R&D Tax Credits with a well-known accountancy practice.

“We were claiming with one of the ‘Big 4’ accountancy firms before meeting with The MPA Group. Through MPA’s understanding of our business, our work and our industry, they noticed that we were claiming R&D Tax Credits from the wrong scheme. It was the thorough understanding of the R&D scheme and their meticulous eye for detail, which enabled MPA to spot this. Thanks to MPA, we gained an uplift of £26,000 in tax relief for that claim year. That’s why working with a specialist is always best. “MPA have undoubtable expertise in the R&D Tax Credits scheme.”

Sector-specific knowledge maximises value

Utilising MPA’s team of professionals, who each hold in-depth industry knowledge and expertise across a number of sectors, including life sciences, NeuroSolutions has simplified its R&D Tax Credits process while ensuring the business is able to maximise the value of its claim.

“Being able to talk on a peer-to-peer level, really has made a difference in the way the claims process operates. The MPA Group understands our business and we’re confident that we’re in the best hands. It is our aim to grow NeuroSolutions as a business, so relief like this is vital in maintaining the business whilst we look to relocate to a larger laboratory premises.”

As a HMRC UK tax incentive, R&D Tax Credits are designed to encourage companies to invest in innovation. For NeuroSolutions, they offer the business an opportunity to claim back a proportion of its R&D expenditure as tax credits, playing a significant role in the business’ wider expansion plans.
