Our values

Our consistently-held values have shaped the business we are today. They help to create the unique culture that sets us apart: the way we behave with our clients, partners and each other, as well as the quality of our work.


We strive for excellence in everything we do. We recruit the top talent in tax and from within industry, and train to the gold standard. We’re not content to stand still, and instead constantly challenge ourselves to learn and improve. This commitment to excellence results in superior advice and amazing results.


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.


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.

The number of trees we've helped to plant so far!

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 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.
