Aquaflow Services had never submitted an R&D tax relief claim previously meaning that we were able to identify qualifying R&D activities over the company’s last two tax years. In total, we identified an overall R&D investment of £575,000 and claimed back £150,000 in tax credits.
“Our last accountant had never told us about R&D and our eligibility to claim. Champion came highly recommended and they didn’t disappoint.
“The entire process was really simple and it’s made us rethink our R&D activities and we’re now having regular internal meetings to see what more we can do in terms of research and development and bring new innovative solutions to market.”
Keith Borrett, managing director at Aquaflow Services
