IP Tax Solutions: A bit about us

IP Tax Solutions was launched back in January 2013 to support ambitious fast-growth ambitious companies - from start-ups to international groups - in accessing and optimising government-backed innovation tax incentives such as R&D tax credits.

It was founded by Steve Livingston LLB FCA who, having trained with one of the Big 4 accountancy firms, progressing to senior manager before joining a mid-tier firm as tax partner, had the goal to bridge the gap between small, independent local accountancy firms and the large international firms.

"I believe that it is important for entrepreneurs to consider and understand their tax affairs holistically. To understand how one tax relief claim might have a knock-on effect elsewhere - for example, the interaction of taxes between themselves and their company. This is often missed by smaller firms and very specialist advisors. And can be costly in the future."

"Twenty years' tax experience and knowledge come to bear. I think that's important."

Our Clients
