Our mission

It’s our mission to help innovative businesses grow using R&D tax incentives. We’re privileged to see first-hand the positive impact that R&D tax credits can have on a business.

Giving your business a culture of R&D means more innovation: safer risk-taking, larger claims, and overall business growth. Many of our clients use their R&D tax credit to hire new STEM talent and embark on even more ambitious R&D projects.

Our work has created the equivalent of more than 15,000 technical jobs in the UK - a vital pathway for future talent in science, technology, engineering and mathematics careers. This is good news for the economy, and ultimately helps the incentive achieves its aims.

With R&D tax incentives, the government wants to reward private sector innovation as a way to increase productivity. Let us help you access the credit your business deserves.

Integrity

We value relationships above all else. Keeping our clients happy is what makes us tick. We communicate openly and honestly, and take time to understand your business to uncover the full extent of your R&D. Our approach is rigorous, with a quality assurance process built-in. This means our work is considered, fully-maximised and protected from risk.

Passion

We are energetic, driven and inquisitive by nature. We’re passionate about our clients, their innovation and the positive impact that R&D tax incentives can have – on a business and the UK economy as a whole. This common purpose drives us forward as a team and has a phenomenal impact.

ForrestBrown's Forest

ForrestBrown’s forest is our green initiative. It is a metaphorical forest, but one with real trees that helps our planet and vulnerable populations. It’s our way of giving something back.

For every R&D tax credit claim we complete, we’ll plant a tree in one of the most impoverished regions of Africa. In line with the vision of our fantastic partners at TREE AID, trees become the lifeline that helps locals out of extreme poverty and hunger. Villagers are trained in how to sustainably harvest the trees, providing produce that can be eaten or sold. Trees survive the droughts that cause crop failure, offering a much-needed safety net. In Africa’s drylands, trees mean life.

Our charitable giving in 2018

In 2018, we supported local charity BRACE. BRACE assist dementia research through the funds they raise. They do this by awarding grants to university-based researchers in south west England and south Wales. BRACE aims to help medical science understand what causes dementia, facilitate earlier diagnosis and find new treatments.

Our charitable giving in 2017

In 2017, we supported the Max McGhee memorial fund – part of the Headlight mental health charity. Max was the son of one of our employees. He had struggled with psychosis and an autism spectrum disorder and sadly passed away in early 2017. The memorial fund was set up to initially help fund a sensory calm-down room in a local mental health hospital.
