How confident are you in your ability to handle an HMRC enquiry into an R&D tax relief claim?
In the past, you might have felt confident in compiling an R&D tax relief claim for your client.
If you have prepared a robust claim for your client, then this should withstand this extra scrutiny. You and your client should be able to answer HMRC’s questions. But if not, then it can impact the value of the claim and in some cases, penalties are applied. An enquiry might mean the client’s R&D tax relief could be delayed but HMRC can raise an enquiry even if your client has already received the benefit.
As one the longest-established innovation tax specialists in the UK, we have the experience, knowledge and expertise to respond to an enquiry. We undertake a quick assessment of your client’s R&D tax relief submission and we will give your client a clear and frank opinion of the best way forward.
How do I know if my clients are at risk from an HMRC enquiry?
Even if your client isn’t facing an enquiry into their R&D tax relief claim there is still a risk. We can offer the same service against any of your clients’ previous submissions so that your client has a clear understanding of any potential risks. This proactive approach can provide peace of mind and ensure that you and your client have confidence that the claim is robust and defendable should it become subject to an enquiry. It can protect against reputational risk for you and allow the client to plan for the future with certainty
