We were quickly reassured by ForrestBrown who immediately put together a very senior and
specialist team to resolve the enquiry and handle all communications with HMRC. Their insight into HMRC’s processes and protocols enabled them to negotiate effectively on our behalf.

ForrestBrown held thorough talks with our design team to ensure all of our R&D was uncovered and looked beyond our R&D projects to get a bigger picture of the business and the nature of our work.

A recent ForrestBrown consultancy project

A healthcare manufacturer asked us to identify any untapped value in their claim. Because they were rolling forward the same process each year, they were viewing their R&D too narrowly – despite working with a top 10 accountant to prepare their claim. Our recommendations resulted in a more robust claim and a significant uplift.

Working with ForrestBrown doesn’t swallow up our valuable time as they do a lot of the work for us. With our other claims, it required hours of work from four or five of our technical people.
