Well, here we are at the end of our first quarter of FY2023, and what a quarter it’s been! We’ve released a whole heap of new features that we’re really proud of and are now looking ahead to all of the work we’ve got planned for Q2. Before we give you a sneak peek of what we’ll be releasing over the summer, here’s our highlights of Q1:

Q1 Highlights

1) Workflow and renewals calendars

We’re committed to helping you manage your claims pipeline, so we’ve built two new dashboards to help you keep track of your claim deadlines and renewals.

2) Claim reviews and risk assessments

To help you make sure that your claims are as robust and defensible as possible, we released our risk assessment feature and gave you the ability to purchase claim reviews through the app.

3) Improved technical detail question

To make it easier for you to prepare claims and ensure that they are accurate and compliant, we released our improved technical details questions. It’s now much easier to make sure you enter the information that HMRC wants to see.

4) Notes on questions

To help you manage your claims better and keep track of the work you’ve done, we’ve released a notes feature to give you the ability to record why and how you’ve answered the claim questions, as well as communicate better with your colleagues and collaborators. 

Coming up!

So, having done all of that, what are we planning to do over the next three months? Our focus for this quarter is improving the report to make it more flexible for our users. This will include enabling users to: 

  • Use their own corporate colours; 
  • Add footer text, enabling the inclusion of disclaimers and copyright information;
  • Include a company logo on the front page of the report;
  • Add a report section giving background information on the claimant company;
  • Upload images to the report.

Alongside this we’ll be giving you the ability to flag questions that need to be changed or updated before the claim is finalised and adding furlough costs into the staff costs question.

How to write an R&D tax relief technical narrative

With HMRC’s new mandatory requirement for project descriptions on all submissions, we wanted to share our experiences to help others to write their best possible technical narratives.
