Meet Our R&D Taxperts – Liz Goldie
R&D Tax Credits are a government-backed initiative designed to encourage innovation. Successful claims can provide a valuable source of cashflow for eligible companies, allowing businesses to invest back into the company.
At EQ, we have a dedicated team of R&D Taxperts that submit claims on behalf of our clients. To date, they have helped claim over £22m of tax savings for our clients, many of which are delivered on a yearly basis.
As accountants, tax and business advisors, we spend time getting to know clients’ businesses, allowing us to fully explore the scope of a potential R&D claim. This has allowed us to ensure that every claim submitted has benefitted the client, resulting in significant tax savings to invest back into their business.
We spoke with our Manager, Liz Goldie, and asked her to provide advice to anyone considering making a claim or changing providers.
How long have you been completing R&D claims for?
“I have a varied tax background and have been completing R&D claims for just over two years now.”
What kind of claims have you been involved in recently?
“My most recent claims that I have carried out R&D work for have been in the engineering and manufacturing sectors. One of those R&D claims was a 2-year claim for a engineering client, which resulted in a client saving of £39,237.”
You can read the case study in full here.
What do you enjoy most about helping clients claim R&D tax credits?
“I enjoy getting to know more about the client’s business and I like that no two claims are the same. I personally find it very rewarding being able to help our client’s achieve tax savings.”
What advice would you give someone who may be unsure if they are eligible to make a claim?
“Many businesses don’t realise that they are eligible to claim, my advice to someone who was unsure would be to get in contact and ask the question – there’s nothing to lose but so much to gain if there is claim there.”
If you would like to discuss your circumstances with Rachel or any of our R&D Taxperts, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We will never tie you into a contract and would be happy to have a no obligation discussion to see if we can help you make a claim.
