Our specialist team will carefully review each section for accuracy, compliance, and optimisation. Your dedicated claims manager will discuss benchmarking for cost optimisation. Rest assured, our Ex-HMRC specialists conduct thorough checks on final applications before submission.



When you're ready to submit, the platform automates the process by populating your company, cost and technical data into the Additional Information Form which will automatically get sent to HMRC. In addition you can choose to submit the corporation tax return (CT600) yourself or let our team handle that too.
