Every R&D tax credit claim is unique and comes with its own nuances. But there are three big questions you should always ask when assessing your own claims.
  • Value – are you getting what you deserve?
  • Risk – are you being properly protected from risk?
  • Time – is your claim preparation taking up too much of your time?
If you’re not confident when answering these questions, don’t worry. That’s why the UKWA and ForrestBrown have put together this quick 30-minute webinar for UKWA members who are already claiming.With Covid19 causing a surge in demand on the UK’s warehousing sector, logistics businesses are increasingly making themselves streamlined and automated. An effective R&D tax credit claim can help lessen these costs substantially, so now is a critical time to get your claim right.

David Longbottom, Director, Construction Automation

The way ForrestBrown has gone about our claim has been very professional. I was ultimately concerned about liability. If there was an enquiry, I knew it would rest with me. But the support ForrestBrown offers put me at ease in case HMRC have any questions.
