Professional Advice With a Personal Touch

There are two important things to say about tax laws - they are always changing, and they are invariably complex. That is why expert guidance and specialist advice is truly essential. Thompson Jenner’s Devon based tax teams can advise on the most appropriate tax strategy for your business whether you are a sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership or limited company.

Research & Development (R&D) tax relief

HMRC R&D tax reliefs allow businesses to offset R&D costs by either reducing their corporation tax bill or obtaining cash rebates for a loss-making business. It’s a valuable funding source and recent improvements to the R&D tax relief system, now make it more accessible and valuable for entrepreneurs and owners of growing businesses.

We have successfully claimed relief on over £4.5M of additional expenditure for our clients ranging from software development, engineering products and nutritional drinks to growing chili plants. See Research & Development tax relief or read our Claim what you are due in R&D tax relief fact sheet for more details of our specialist tax services.
