Protect your finances with cash rewards supported by the UK Government. R&D Tax Credits offer a quick cash injection or tax saving as a reward from HMRC for the research and development your business has already undertaken – and the best part…they don’t even need to have been successful!

On average, limited businesses with more than one employee receive £57,000 per yearly claim with R&D Tax Credits.

We spoke to Dawn Coker (Chief Operating Officer), Thomas Ferguson (Head of Business Development) and Brian Sainsbury (Partner & Manufacturing Specialist) from R&D Tax Specialists Access2Funding to get details on this crucial source of income that your business could be missing out on.
