First off, a dedicated claims manager will kick off the claim with a 30-minute onboarding call. They’ll give an overview of EmpowerRD’s R&D claim process and guide you in identifying R&D projects that meet the criteria. Together, you will then establish timelines and project goals.
There are 4 steps to complete for submission. This includes setup, projects, costs and allocation.
Once each step on the claim platform is completed, our team of tax professionals and ex-HMRC inspectors will review, edit and provide feedback for each step within 48 hours to ensure the claim aligns with BEIS guidelines.
When all edits have been made, and the EmpowerRD team is happy and confident, the claim is ready; it will be shared with you to finalise accuracy and completeness.
When you’re ready to submit, the platform automates the process by populating your company, cost and technical data into the Additional Information Form. You can choose to submit the corporation tax return (CT600) yourself or let our team handle that, too.
After submitting your claim, we’ll chase HMRC to prevent delays.
If, by chance, HMRC conducts an enquiry, we’ll assist you in resolving the matter without charging additional fees.
