Creating an Expert Business Model by working together.

More and more accountancy firms are recognising the benefits of working with specialist R&D Tax Relief companies, as this adds value to their clients and enhances their overall proposition – resulting in increased customer acquisition and improved customer retention.

Many clients automatically assume that, as R&D Tax Relief contains the word Tax, it must be an accounting issue. However, the majority of the claims process requires a technical context and understanding. Without this technical knowledge and, as importantly, understanding of how it relates to the context of the complex R&D Tax legislation, it is very unlikely that claims will be fully optimised and supported in the case of an HMRC enquiry.

Access to highly qualified technicians with experience, for example, in software development or advanced manufacturing, rather than relying on the client to cover the technical side, could eliminate missed opportunities and avoid creating grey areas in terms of responsibility and accountability for the claim.

Why Partner with MSC R&D

Whilst many ‘Specialists’ just apply a similar accounting-based process, adding little technical input to the process and can justifiably be seen by accountants as competitors, MSC R&D are very different.

We have over 25 years’ experience supporting R&D focussed businesses with a unique range of strategic, integrated R&D funding and business growth services – we live and breathe R&D.

Targeting the ICT, Manufacturing, Transport and Energy sectors, MSC R&D can offer you, the accountancy firm, a range of complementary services that represents a business opportunity to you, not a business risk.

It may also be that you, depending on your range of services, can add value to our clients.
