Our Fees and Pricing

R&D tax relief claim

We work on a cumulative sliding scale success fee. What does that actually mean? Cumulative refers to each fee band calculation being added together. Sliding scale refers to fee banding depending on how much you claim back from HMRC.

Success fee is only payable once HMRC have accepted the claim.*

Our fee banding per claim operates as below:

25% success fee – £0 – £15,000 of R&D tax benefit

20% success fee – £15,001 – £50,000 of R&D tax benefit

15% success fee – £50,001 – £100,000 of R&D tax benefit

10% success fee – £100,001 – £150,000 of R&D tax benefit

5% success fee – £150,001+ of R&D tax benefit

So what does this actually look like?

If you were to receive £20,000 of benefit, the fee would be 23.75%

If you were to receive £50,000 of benefit, the fee would be 21.5%

If you were to receive £100,000 of benefit, the fee would be 18.25%

If you were to receive £250,000 of benefit, the fee would be 11.3%

Why do we work on a fee basis?

It all comes down to transparency. We are one of the only R&D tax consultants (that doesn’t use software to generate your claim) who publishes their fees on their website.

This fee structure allows our efforts to not just be focused on R&D tax but on other areas of funding to support you.
