On the 11th June 2018 we made a Research and Development tax claim for a client. On the 16th July 2018, after HMRC had completed their checks, the client received a £230k
tax refund. We identified that our client was undertaking qualifying research and development projects so, our experts assisted them to establish how much they were entitled
to in tax relief. By computing the amount spent on their works, we were able to swiftly put together and submit the claim.
After being approached by a start-up retailer, we were able to work with the new business to ensure that their accounting solutions were efficient from the get-go, allowing
them to focus on making a success of the business. By employing our knowledge of point of sale and accounting software, we were able to construct a smart system which
met this client’s needs. We implemented this record keeping system quickly enabling us to then focus on business planning and cash flow in line with their long-term plans.
