Research and Development Tax Relief

Many companies in the North West aren’t aware they can qualify for research & development (R&D) tax relief and are still missing out on the opportunity to significantly reduce their corporation tax bills or even missing out on refunds.

We have found that many companies are carrying out qualifying R&D as part of their existing commercial product development as a way to stay ahead of the competition. However, they are not recovering these costs, which in many cases is worth thousands of pounds.

To date we have saved our clients over £8.1million in R&D tax relief claims. 

Read more about R&D tax on our fact sheet and get in touch if you think you might be eligible.

Patent Box

Patent Box is the government’s name for the new system of charging lower rates of tax on profits from patents. It applies to patents granted in the UK and Europe, including those granted before Patent Box was introduced in April 2013. If you have patented products or are considering applying for patents then understanding this generous tax relief is essential.  Find out more by reading our Patent Box fact sheet.
