We help UK companies access & optimise Government innovation tax incentives

How we can help you

R&D Tax Credits

The Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit Scheme is a UK Government tax incentive designed to encourage and support companies that seek to develop new products or services

R&D Tax Credits claims are core to what we do


The Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) are UK Government tax initiatives.

These tax reliefs seek to encourage private investment into UK limited companies that are seeking to grow

Patent Box

The Patent Box aims to support and incentivise UK companies to hold qualifying patents

Companies can benefit from significant reductions in corporation tax payable on worldwide profits derived from the relevant patents

Video Games Tax

Video Games Tax Relief (VGTR) was introduced to help UK video games developers compete on the global stage

VGTR allows UK games developers to recover expenditure incurred on qualifying games

We are helping innovative companies just like you

Sometimes it helps to just pick up the phone and talk through your business goals and discuss which tax reliefs might be available to your company. It can be a bit of a minefield to navigate but that's where we can step in and help (we deal with this stuff every day and.......yes, we love it!)

It doesn't matter if you already have an accountant - in fact that's the ideal scenario. We aim to supplement the great work they're no doubt already doing for you with our specialist tax services. We can all play together nicely :)

Our aim is to be as virtual as possible in delivering our help to companies of all sizes across the UK and not be confined by geography. We have large pockets of clients in and around London, Manchester, Midlands, Wales and South East and pretty much everywhere in between!
