Delays in processing R&D Tax Relief claims – Letter to HMRC
24 Jun 2019
We have seen significant delays recently on HM Revenue & Customs’ (HMRC) part in the processing of Research & Development (R&D) Tax Relief claims. This is greatly disadvantaging companies who rely on HM Government’s investment in these reliefs to support their innovation, in particular startups who rely on inward investment and R&D Tax Relief rather than the built up reserves of more mature companies.
We have therefore written to Mr Jesse Norman, Financial Secretary to the Treasury, asking him to conduct an urgent review into the delays and to report back to us regarding the reasons for these issues and what is intended to be done to improve matters. We will report back on his response and the outcome of his investigation in due course.
If you are entitled to claim money back for research and development, or if you are unsure of what qualifies for R&D Tax Relief, get in touch. Our proven methodology offers a seamless approach towards obtaining government money back for innovation, as demonstrated by our 100 per cent success record.
