Is your company missing out on Research & Development tax relief?

Often overlooked by UK companies, R&D tax relief can offer significant corporation tax savings on eligible expenditure. If your company is developing new products or improving its products or processes in some way, then this may qualify as R&D. There is scope for identifying R&D in any sector.

At ETC Tax, our R&D experts can help assess your company’s activities to maximise R&D tax relief opportunities. We can manage your R&D claim from start to finish, allowing you to focus on managing your business.
