The claims process for an SME

There are several key steps to claiming R&D tax relief as an SME, beginning with understanding the terms on which you can claim, before continuing onto making a detailed claim that factors in all of your identifiable R&D costs.

Success Stories

We appreciate that many companies looking into an R&D tax claim will want to assess our expertise.
With this in mind, here are some examples of R&D claim services we have provided to other companies.

Jon Matthews Architects Ltd

R&D claims equaling £40k per annum

Cowgills have been our trusted R&D advisors for a number of years and have assisted us with making claims which has always been an efficient and simple process. James, Dominic and Claudia hosted a large meeting with the Company’s specialists to ensure they understand the criteria for qualifying R&D and effectively log/record the work carried out. This has been extremely useful and allowed us to maximise the claims as much as possible.

ADI.TV

LED and content services supplier to the Sports and Entertainment Industries

ADI has developed an excellent relationship with the Cowgills' R&D team over several years. The business has an ongoing commitment to R&D and Innovation supporting the development of our products and services we offer our customers. We have regular meetings when it comes to preparing our R&D tax relief claim to discuss the projects we have undertaken and activities involved during the development process. Cowgills support has been invaluable throughout the R&D rebate process, providing clear guidance and support as required and excellent communication clearly. They have often highlighted areas where we qualify for support that we were not aware of.

Lily Communications Ltd

Business communications and I.T. solutions

We discussed the Company’s activities with Cowgills in February 2021 and they have since assisted us with preparing robust and thorough R&D claims, ensuring that up-to-date guidance is taken in to consideration. They have also supported us with the write-up of thorough summaries of the projects undertaken to justify the claims to HMRC, which has made the process as simple as possible.
