R&D tax is set to change.

A more rigorous approach to compliance and new legislation are set to come in from 2023, with HMRC honing in on R&D tax relief. Clients will need the best R&D guidance from their accountants, who can build on their existing relationships as knowledgeable, trusted advisors for their R&D tax relief claims.

This guide lays out how to begin this journey with the right tools, skills and understanding to deliver an efficient service, enabling you to maximise your margins and reap the rewards of bringing R&D tax support in-house.
