Research & Development Tax Credits

Research and development (R&D) tax credits are a government incentive designed to reward UK companies for investing in innovation. They are a valuable source of cash for businesses to invest in accelerating their R&D, hiring new staff and ultimately growing. The specialised nature of R&D means that not all accountants offer the service. Therefore many businesses do not realise that they qualify for R&D Tax Credits or they are not claiming their full entitlement.

How R&D Credits work

R&D for the purpose of tax relief is designed to support companies that work on innovative projects in science and technology. It can be claimed by companies that seek to research or develop an advance in their field. Your project may research or develop a new process, product or service or improve on an existing one, and claims may also be made against unsuccessful projects.

  • We can handle your R&D claim from start to finish, dealing directly with HMRC on your behalf
  • Maximise your R&D claim by identifying all qualifying projects and eligible expenses
  • Produce a technical report describing how your project meets the criteria to support your claim

HMRC Investigations & Insurance

If you are concerned about the possibility of an HMRC tax investigation or have been notified that you or your business are being investigated by HMRC, our team can help.

Tax audits and tax investigations can be complex and stressful. Unless you are very sure of your position, you should take professional advice as soon as a tax investigation or inspection starts to mitigate any additional tax due.

Many businesses will face a routine tax audit from time to time. More serious tax investigations are likely if HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) suspects your tax returns are inaccurate.

Tax Fee Protection

Even if you have done nothing wrong, if an investigation is launched, it is wise to get immediate professional advice and representation from your accountant. Such representation does incur fees and can be costly, especially if it takes some time to resolve and requires in depth records being prepared to support your case.

However, it is possible to get insurance to help cover the costs of fees incurred during an investigation. For your peace of mind, CCBC offers all its clients the option to purchase our Tax Fee Protection Service.

By subscribing to the tax investigation fee protection service our fees will be paid for if HMRC investigate you, and you’ll be reassured to know that you are dealing with a trusted and familiar face.

We believe that we know your business best and we want to be there for you when you need us most. Find out more or sign up for the CCBC Tax Fee Protection Service.

Corporation Tax

Corporation tax is a major part of your trading costs, and as with all taxes there are deadlines for submission of the tax returns and payment of outstanding tax. Much time and resource can be taken up by these reporting obligations and the whole process can seem like a minefield to a business.

As a limited company, you will have to register with HMRC that you are accountable for corporation tax on your profits.

Depending on your profits, we can help you calculate how much corporation tax is due and advice you on taxing areas that may benefit both yourself and the business.

We can assist you and your business by completing and filing business tax returns. By utilising our corporate tax services, we can act as intermediaries for any disputes with the tax authorities.

As part of this service, we can also help you to determine the most tax effective structure for your business by taking full advantage of tax opportunities and reliefs. It is our job to make sure that you achieve the best capital or revenue tax treatment as well as reducing your tax on disposals and maximising relief on acquisitions.

There are also many tax opportunities specific to certain industries, which our in-house specialists can address with you. We will remind you when deadlines are approaching therefore you can avoid hefty fines.
