Tax Recovery - an important potential source of funding for companies


One area of funding which is hugely neglected in the UK business sector is the money that can be recovered through the current UK Research and Development Tax Credit Scheme. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/ct/forms-rates/claims/randd.htm

The scheme is designed to encourage and reward innovation. It allows innovative companies to either recover Corporation Tax paid and or receive a rebate of the NIC/PAYE generated by the business. Most first time claimants are able to also submit a claim for the last two completed year ends.

There are several reasons to investigate whether you qualify for this scheme:

  • The average claim in the first year is £40k
  • Most companies do not recognise the fact that they do 'R&D', as HMRC guidelines are complex to interpret, and not fully understood by mainstream accountancy practices.

Why you should use an expert

  • Why you should use an expert
  • We are specialist R&D Tax Consultancy working on a no win no fee basis with many years experience in this area. Our background in software, technology and manufacturing means we understand this sector.
  • We work with the client and their accountant to manage the end-to-end process from qualification to final payment from HMRC

Types of work or projects undertaken that might qualify:

  • The company must be a UK Limited company
  • The company must have paid either Corporation tax and/or NI & PAYE
  • Software/technology and manufacturing companies are particularly suitable
  • Adding value to products and manufacturing processes
  • Projects that have failed can also be included
  • Projects undertaken that seek to be greener more efficient


What we can offer through the Synatus Soft Channel Initiative

  • Free Appraisal Service for prospective clients to assess whether there is a claim, and the likely size of that claim.
  • We pay commission for any successful introduction from Synatus partners.
  • We regularly update members as to the status of the claim.
