R&D – Architecture

Sector – Architecture
Company Size – £1.3m Turnover
Qualifying Costs – £109,481

Our client is a company based in the East of Scotland that provides architectural services, predominantly to commercial businesses rather than domestic clients. The business was recently incorporated, opening up its eligibility to claim R&D tax credits.

What type of work does the company do?
The R&D work undertaken over a 16 month period predominantly covered two main areas:

  1. The company leads the UK market in transport infrastructure, delivering a series of unique designs.
  2. The company undertook a series of innovative office furniture designs utilising different materials, assisting poor posture etc.

What R&D work was completed?
Transport infrastructure projects have to manage a series of unique features that provide major challenges for the architects, such as the location, the number of people using, say, a station, how high the location is situated above sea level, temperature, health and safety factors, and visibility to name but a few issues. Our client is a market leader in this area, working with the main contractor to provide a series of high-level solutions, resulting in it securing further contract work in the sector.

What was the outcome?
As a result of the R&D claim, our client received tax savings of £27,501.
