Obtaining HMRC advance assurance can be time consuming. We are here to help.


Although R&D tax credits have been around for quite some time, many entrepreneurs are not aware that they can significantly benefit from them. It is important for entrepreneurs of start up companies to take advantage of any governmental incentivisation and support that may be available to them as this support directly impacts cashflows as well as shows investors that the business is being operated in an efficient and effective manner. HMRC offer advance assurance to companies seeking to claim R&D credits. This assists companies with accurately estimating and budgeting for the benefits for three years. Although it is not necessary to obtain this in order to put in a R&D tax credit claim, it will get the credit processed faster, with less hassle. This is where we can help you. We are here to ensure that your company is optimising all the available support and claiming back the cash it is potential due.  And, most importantly, we take the hassle of preparing and making the claim off your hands.
