At first, I was slightly sceptical about the process and apprehensive about the work involved but ForrestBrown took the burden and their approach removed my initial concerns. Thanks to them, we made a successful claim which will help the business invest further in its R&D activities.
The process of getting the money with R&D Tax Credits with ForrestBrown was incredibly simple… It has shaped the future of my business, I’m now being more adventurous, taking more risks because there is a resource to help me.
I am extremely pleased with the end-to-end services provided which included regular updates and meeting the agreed time scales. I would have no hesitation to recommend ForrestBrown, they showed particular expertise to us within the digital sector understanding our business model and services which is crucial when making any claim.
Our business will benefit enormously following successful R&D claims managed by ForrestBrown.
The construction of the claim was methodical and thorough and their tax and HMRC knowledge was evident throughout the process.
ForrestBrown have recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds of R&D tax credits for us from HMRC. Few advisers have had the sizeable impact on our business that Simon and his team have delivered.
I’ve been contacted about R&D tax relief on a number of occasions and had always dismissed the idea. When I spoke with ForrestBrown I was surprised at the range of activities which can qualify, and they quickly began building the case for our claim. In a matter of weeks the claim was successfully processed for more than I could have ever hoped, my only regret is that I hadn’t contacted ForrestBrown sooner.
We were very new to the idea of R&D tax credits but Simon and his team explained everything and guided us through the whole process. The input from us was minimal and ForrestBrown kept us up to date with our claim, which was successful and has allowed us to invest and expand the team. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending ForrestBrown to others working in digital and creative.
Having handled our previous tax claims ourselves we found ourselves this year with a complex mix of internal R&D, grant funded R&D and customer R&D and the structure of our claim became exceedingly complex. ForrestBrown cut through the complexity, handled the whole process for us and successfully claimed back significantly more than we originally expected.
I was able to concentrate on other pressing business matters confident that ForrestBrown were in total control of our claim. In a matter of weeks the R&D tax credit claim was submitted to HMRC and shortly thereafter we received a pay-out. Simon absolutely delivered on his promise, I would have no hesitation in using ForrestBrown’s services again and would strongly recommend them to anyone.
I would have no hesitation in recommending ForrestBrown, they managed our claim efficiently and the whole process was entirely pain free. I was delighted by the result and I look forward to working with them in future claims.
ForrestBrown have assisted Mubaloo in securing a significant R&D claim. Other advisers had told us that it wasn’t possible, so I would recommend ForrestBrown without reservation.
Lisa has been wonderfully proactive with our business and has improved our bottom line for 2014 significantly through her initiatives. A pleasure to work with she has been quick to understand our business and suggest areas that we might focus on to make it more work more efficiently financially. I am particularly impressed by her insightful ability to summarise our activities succinctly using plain english.
The ForrestBrown team met with us and asked us a number of probing questions which got right to the heart of what R&D activity we were doing, and where our manpower or financial resource was being directed. We really appreciated the fact they took the pains they did to understand our business, a real rarity for a tax consultancy which usually operate through phone calls, questionnaires and infrequent meetings.
ForrestBrown were a pleasure to work with – straightforward, efficient and professional – effectively guiding and advising us through the claims process. With their help we have received R&D tax relief claims that have helped us invest further in our growth.
From the beginning of the process Simon and the team at ForrestBrown have been upfront and concise in their communication, explanations and handling of our data. We love the way they see an opportunity and act quickly in a manner that has minimal operational impact on our day-to-day running of the business.
I had considered R&D tax credits before, but having looked at the HMRC website and the way its was worded I thought we wouldn’t qualify. I also thought the process looked onerous and that we’d have a limited chance of success so decided against it. However, then ForrestBrown were recommended, working with a professional the intention behind the policy and how it was an appropriate option for e3 became clear.
From the start Simon was personable, efficient and to the point. Most important of all his team were very effective in helping us submit a number of successful claims. The no-win no-fee setup was appealing to us as a small business but they didn’t scrimp on the service. Many thanks for the hard work, the team made it simple and pain free.
We had a horrific experience with the first tax consultants that we used and then stumbled across ForrestBrown. Please look no further if you want efficient, friendly and knowledgeable service, they made the process a smooth and painless experience. It is not often that you find such commitment to client satisfaction.
I would highly recommend Simon and his team at ForrestBrown. They helped Unit9 make a significant R&D tax credit claim and their specialist knowledge and professionalism was very clear as they guided us through a potentially tricky enquiry with HMRC and negotiated an excellent result for the business.
ForrestBrown delivered exactly on what they said they would. The process was simple and quick with a more than satisfactory outcome. We would recommend any agency get in touch with them.
We were able to maximise our R&D tax reclaim to levels we had not previously dreamt of. Specifically, where we anticipated getting a tax rebate of £36 we were actually able to reclaim more than £15,000 through Simon’s superb efforts and skilled approach.
It took just over 8 weeks for the ForrestBrown team to successfully process a rebate for 2 years filed accounts. With successful R&D claims behind us, we are now taking the opportunity to reconsider some financial aspects of our business – proactive tax planning is now part of our business strategy.
I have been extremely impressed by Simon and the team at ForrestBrown in their handling of an R&D tax credit claim for Content Hub. Their communication and guidance throughout the process has been exemplary and, most importantly, they helped reduce the amount of input required to a much lower level than I anticipated. I would thoroughly recommend their services.
I’d like to say first of all how pleased I’ve been with service provided by ForrestBrown over the past few months. Kelly and the ForrestBrown team have worked in a very professional and efficient manner throughout which has been much appreciated. The benefits arising from the R&D tax claim will enable us to invest further in our R&D activities. I look forward to being able to work with ForrestBrown again on future year’s claims.
