James McPhail, Commercial Director, Carbon Gold
R&D tax credits first came onto my radar through a friend who was working with ForrestBrown. Since then we’ve submitted six claims and the incentive has provided a valuable cash boost for our business. 100% of it is reinvested into developing our products.

Rob Foulkes, Founder & Managing Director, PSS Engineering
With our previous R&D tax credit adviser, it was filling in form after form. Since switching to ForrestBrown, however, the process has been much smoother because we speak to their sector specialists on a peer-to-peer level.
Are you facing an HMRC enquiry into your R&D tax credit claim?
Access unrivalled specialist technical expertise when you need it most. We will resolve your enquiry efficiently with the best possible result for your business.
The ForrestBrown team are absolute experts at what they do. The claim itself was submitted within two weeks of project kick-off. The process is painless, communication is superb, responses to queries are immediate.
A creative agency
This agency used the benefit from multiple years R&D to claims to navigate through the financial impact of COVID-19.
Colin Jones, Managing Director, Bespoke Handling Equipment
When we spoke to ForrestBrown they helped us identify all our qualifying projects, which meant we could be certain that we were getting all that we were entitled to.
Andrew Trower, Director, Trower Davies
When we received our first R&D tax credit, the value far exceeded our initial expectations. Being able to reinvest the money back into our business has really helped us work towards our objectives and invest in further R&D projects.
We have used another company for R&D in the past but we have found that ForrestBrown are the best by a long way.
George Alexander, Director, weareseventeen
We’ve worked with ForrestBrown for a number of years now and will continue to do so. Their expertise in their field is clear and they make it an easy process for us to go through with their systematic approach to what can be a complex area.
A building services company
This contractor supplied the mechanical and electrical services for a facility that undertakes neurotrauma research. The facility had to remain functional whilst the company undertook the work, so it developed a temporary HVAC system to be used whilst the existing system was being replaced.
ForrestBrown guided us through our application, showing great patience and empathy. What I liked most was their ability to suggest ideas rather than simply stick to a rigid formula.
A commercial fit-out specialist
This glass specialist developed a bespoke partition system for a meeting room that incorporated an additional glass panel to house the room’s lighting and air-conditioning controls and received a benefit of £245,000.
Working with the team at ForrestBrown was a dream. They were exceptionally helpful, friendly and professional throughout the process.
A pharmaceutical business
This pharmaceutical company received £515,000 after synthesizing a generic drug in a cost-effective and reliable way.
As the UK’s largest specialist R&D tax credit consultancy, we offer unrivalled specialist technical expertise. Our team – including chartered tax advisers, chartered accountants, lawyers, sector specialists and former-HMRC inspectors – is what sets us apart.
