When Parliament enacted the R&D (research and development) Tax Credit many years ago, it fully intended for it to be used by businesses of all sizes. However, it did not turn out that way for a variety of reasons – the complexity of the documentation, the cost of hiring experts to do the documentation and the general confusion over what does and doesn’t qualify. Many small and mid-size businesses and their tax advisors felt it was simply not viable to go after this tax credit. So, the only companies taking advantage of this benefit were big businesses.

AMAS is changing that. Specialising in working with small and mid-size businesses, AMAS’s tax specialists have worked extensively in this specialised area of the tax rules. These seasoned professionals can quickly assess whether your company’s activities qualify for the R&D Tax Credit.

We have recently guided a Product Design House, Web Portal business, Carbon Management and a Call Centre company through the process of applying for and securing tax credits for over £270,000 for them. One of these businesses had been in a loss making position and received a cheque in payment of the tax credit.

While the majority of our clients tend to be small and mid-size businesses, our team also performs R&D Tax Credit studies for Footsie 100 companies.

We would be happy to discuss this opportunity with you at your convenience if you are interested in reducing your tax burden.
