Key features of EmpowerRD’s R&D tax credit platform

Automated cost collection

Connect Xero via our secure integration and upload your cost data automatically. (No Xero? No problem – just download our cost collection template and upload it with your accounts data.)

Once you’ve uploaded your cost data, allocate percentages for qualifying expenditure and submit your costs for review. Discover additional costs? Just add them in and repeat the process.

It’s that simple – no more managing different versions of spreadsheets, or losing important information in endless email chains.

Claim benchmarking

Understand how your R&D tax claim compares to other claims – in the same industry, and scheme. See whether your claim seems significantly larger or smaller than claims in the same scheme and industry.

Mitigate the risk of an HMRC enquiry – or of undervaluing your claim – by discussing your benchmarking results with your Client Success Manager, who will be able to advise on how to strengthen your claim, as well as look for undiscovered costs.

Use the benchmarking data to better understand the intensity of R&D for similar claiming companies, and feed into strategic decisions at your company.

Role-based user access

Collaborate with colleagues on your R&D tax claim, without exposing sensitive data. Invite as many users as you need to build your claim.

Our role-based user access enables you to assign discrete tasks to different stakeholders, including tech leads, engineers, and accountants.

Trusted by over 1,000 UK companies
