Research & Development Claim Settled!

Our Taxperts recently completed a Research & Development (R&D) claim for a food manufacturer client based in Scotland, resulting in a client saving of £27,117!

Our client supplies chilled and frozen products to both retail and food service markets. They continually seek to expand their range of products and offer innovative food products to customers. In addition, our client also seeks to improve their production processes and efficiencies and offer higher quality products.

The company’s existing products were adapted to meet government targets and changes in consumer tastes, including healthier products that have lower salt and fat content, higher fruit and vegetable content and higher protein, without adversely affecting the consumer experience.

Work was undertaken to develop new products and recipes, new cooking processes and to determine suitable packaging for the company’s continually changing range of products. In doing so the flavour profile and quality, cost and shelf life of the products all had to be considered.

R&D tax credits provide a valuable cash flow injection for eligible companies. They then have the enviable problem of how to reinvest it for the benefit of the company.

We have completed over 300 claims and saved over £16 million for our clients, through a proactive approach in identifying and completing relevant claims. We can assess your eligibility then prepare a claim for you, if relevant. Your involvement need not take more than three or four hours and the benefits can be huge.

If you would like to discuss your own circumstances or require support, please email our Taxperts or for more information, visit our R&D page.
