About us

We have considerable experience of handling claims for tax relief for companies. Our R & D team is headed up by Chris Newton FCCA CTA who, as well as being a qualified Chartered Certified Accountant, is also a member of the Chartered Institute of Taxation. Chris trained with Grant Thornton and after qualifying moved to KPMG. He then moved to Hacker Young where he became the Nottingham office tax partner.

Chris then set up his independent consultancy in 1992 specialising in SME's who required proactive tax advice. R & D is a subject that Chris has dealt with for a number of years and he has helped a variety of different business types to successfully claim this valuable and often overlooked relief.

Chris also has a profile on LinkedIn.

Our clients who have benefited include engineers, medical systems and products and software developers. Claims range from £5,000 to over £100,000 and no claims have been rejected by HMRC. Across the UK in 2015/16, there was more than 26,000 successful R & D claims made with HMRC.  This shows the specialist nature of this area. With our expert help and guidance, we can ensure that the maximum benefit is achieved.

As well as our own in-house skills, we also work with consultants who are ex Rolls Royce engineers who can bring an extra dimension to this work through their high quality engineering backgrounds.
