In the third article of the Company Connecting series on R&D tax relief, Lindsay Miller of Jumpstart asks the question ‘What are the benefits of taking R&D Tax Advice’? She also provides four key questions that tech companies should ask when engaging an R&D tax advisor. These are summarised below.
- What is the track record, and the training and credentials of the people who’ll be representing you to HMRC?
- Does the service provider understand the technical aspects of the company’s R&D activity? And do they understand the context of a company’s technical activities?
- Where does the responsibility for a claim rest? Who will write the report for HMRC?
- Will the adviser field and answer technical questions from HMRC?
