The R&D Tax Relief scheme had been brought to our attention before, but we felt that being a software and services provider it would be a very difficult task and that we may not qualify. We also contemplated the potential downside of burning a great deal of time, money and effort with no guarantee of success. When we spoke to Andrew it was immediately apparent that he possesses a real in-depth understanding of IT and its particular relevance to the R&D Tax Credit legislation.
From a standing start we received a highly significant tax repayment within just 6 weeks and we would be happy to act as a reference at any time.
