Who we are

ForrestBrown is an award-winning tax consultancy specialising in research and development (R&D) tax credits. Our team of chartered tax advisers help innovative businesses grow.

Picture of the ForrestBrown tax team

R&D tax credits is all we do. This level of specialism means our chartered tax advisers have a deep understanding of the R&D tax legislation and its application to businesses throughout the UK. We are one of the largest teams of chartered tax advisers specialising in research and development (R&D) tax credits in the UK.

Our rigorous approach and robust methodology mean we have never been unsuccessful, have a far lower enquiry rate than the national average and often spot valid R&D that others have missed.

We also pride ourselves on delivering outstanding service. Our clients and partners tell us they like working with us because we combine technical excellence with a passion for innovation. They come back because we consistently deliver fantastic results. And they refer us to others because they trust that we will deliver the same results to companies and people in their network.

Who we've worked with

Our clients operate in every industry sector, and range from start-ups and medium-sized businesses, right through to large organisations employing thousands of people. What do they all have in common? They all innovate. And they use our expertise in R&D tax credits to help them grow their business by maximising the benefit they are entitled to from the government’s R&D tax credit incentive. We help UK companies receive millions of pounds every month to re-invest back into their businesses.

Sector: Creative, digital & media

ForrestBrown have been responsive and proactive in all of our dealings. Continuity of team has allowed them to really understand our business. Their considerable technical firepower through in-house specialists is a great resource for a business like Future. We value our relationship with ForrestBrown and look forward to working with them on future R&D claims.

Sector: Accountants, advisers & partners

Our clients have found the process very simple. They are able to take a hands-off approach while we provide the information to ForrestBrown, which for them is a bonus. Some of them are on their second or third year of working with ForrestBrown which in itself shows how well it is going.
