HMRC Increase Scrutiny on R&D Tax Credit Claims
During our recent meeting with HMRC it was confirmed that a new, robust risk management process has been introduced to police the processing of claims and weed out inaccurate and non-compliant submissions.
Alongside a 20 per cent increase in the number of companies claiming R&D Tax Credits across the UK, HMRC has reported a noticeable increase in risk – or to the layman – potential fraud. In response, a new unit is reviewing a significant number of claims for issues including a lack of information, failing to meet the criteria and suspicious claiming activity.

Our results speak for themselves. We have examined hundreds of companies, identified eligible R&D activities for each and achieved a 100% success rate - ranging from tens of thousands to six-figure sums.
