Introduction to R&D Tax Credits with F-Initiatives

F.Initiatives, Technical guidance - February 2018

Business innovation is the lifeblood of the UK economy, and the UK Government is keen to encourage and reward companies who are helping develop the next big thing for the business world. Tax relief and grants for research and development (R&D) are just two of the ways that small or large businesses can get help to make the big leap forward, but navigating the complex application system across the UK can be a challenge. From researching your R&D tax credit claims to putting your evidence chest together and actually making the claim, it helps to have an expert on your side who can provide a range of R&D tax credit services.

Who are we?

F. Initiatives are innovative and hard working R&D tax consultants, who can help you to get the tax relief you’re owed for your great work in a variety of industries. Unlike most R&D tax consultancies, F. Initiatives is made up of a team that is technology first, tax second. Many of our competitors are made up of finance professionals who have moved into the world of R&D tax, while all of our consultants have a technical background. This gives us a far more well-rounded understanding of the R&D tax landscape. We don’t just understand the small print, we understand your work as an innovator too.

We’re also experts in R&D tax credit, R&D Expenditure Credit (RDEC) and other R&D tax services, so whatever your needs are in the world of R&D taxation – we’re the team to help you out. We’re not just experts in technology, we also understand the R&D tax credit system from the perspective of businesses big and small, and we understand the needs of your industry, so we can apply a bespoke solution that makes your journey to claim R&D tax credits as easy as possible.

This allows us to truly understand your work and your innovations; seeing really is believing!

We also design our services to be non-intrusive, demanding as little input from our clients’ finance and technical teams as possible, so that your company’s valuable time is free to keep expanding your business while we do our work for you. Confidence is the currency that R&D tax consultants live by, and our security and confidentiality procedures meet international standards so that our clients can act in safety.
