Research and Development Tax Specialists

An area where a considerable number of companies are missing out is Research and Development (‘R & D’). There are potentially significant tax savings available if R&D expenditure is identified and appropriate claims made to HM Revenue & Customs. In many cases, an additional uplift on taxallowable R & D expenditure of 125% (130% from 1 April 2015) can be claimed. R&D is not just confined to the laboratory and men in white coats; on the contrary, working with you, you will find that R&D occurs as part of the work you already perform on a day to day basis. Zak Parnetship are R and D Tax Specialists.

We can submit claims for local companies saving corporation tax and can also produce back dated claims in order to generate cash repayments. We can secure cash refunds in the region of £50-200k per annum.

Why has my accountant not mentioned this before? This relief is not automatically given by HM Revenue & Customs and a report is required in order to gain the relief. As such many accountants have stayed clear of this significant relief due to lack of expertise in this field.

"I had not been happy with the service of my previous accountants for a while but I had always been concerned that switching may be inconvenient.
However, I had no cause for worry because the Zak Partnership and I built up a professional understanding extremely quickly, and this was despite
the fact that my business activity was a new experience for the Zak Partnership."
