31 January 2018

Claiming over £2.3 million for our clients in 2017, Preston (Lancashire) based haleys Research and Development (R&D) Tax Experts division retained an exceptionally high rate of claim success.

This is attributed to our team of Technical Analysts and R&D Tax Experts. With backgrounds in engineering, science, information technology, process engineering, and lean manufacturing, our specialist team has grown from three to eight members in 2017, with active recruitment ongoing in 2018.

Successful R&D Tax rebates received in 2017 with the help of our Technical Analysts came from the following range of businesses:

  • Biopharmaceutical
  • Construction & Civil Engineering
  • Distribution & Transport
  • Energy & Agriculture
  • IT & Software
  • Manufacturing & Engineering
  • Professional Services
  • Retail, Wholesale & Leisure
  • Science & Technical

One client from the IT & Software industry shared their experience of R&D in relation to their business;

“My attitude was we don’t do R&D, Tim and Phil identified area where we have devised solutions and tested software, evaluated systems and solved problems. This resulted in a successful claim and a big fat cheque arrived in the post from HMRC. Even if you think you don’t do R&D at least discuss it with haleys.”

Andy Procter of A&N Business Computer Systems Ltd, Lancashire


The process itself has helped many businesses, another client from the retail, wholesale & leisure industry commented on this aspect;

“Whilst I was aware of R&D tax rebates, it was only after a business colleague recommended haleys and a subsequent visit by Phil Hartley to my business, did I realise that the recent projects I had instigated to improve my business would qualify. The sums recovered have been a very pleasant surprise, and an early Christmas present! Just as 80% of my business comes from referrals and recommendations, I will be promoting haleys Research and Development services to my business contacts.”

Robin Bamford of R.B. Contracts, Lancashire


These clients have received substantial tax reclaims and also benefited from the knowledge they have developed of the technical and scientific nature of R&D projects. Successful claims have included expenditure on business activities including; business expansions, fixed assets investments, and improvements to existing products or services, to name a few.
