But we can’t claim for R&D?
Sound familiar? It’s something I hear way too often from new clients, but around 50% of the time it’s not true. When a client tells me their previous accountant ruled them out, or that they don’t think they qualify, I don’t take it as fact. Business activities continuously change, and it can be very easily missed if you don’t know what you are looking for.
Rule it in, rule it out
We have a rule at Elevate Advice, and it is a simple one: since partnering with Radish, I have taken every single client through the R&D Tax Relief eligibility process, so that I can with confidence rule them in, or rule them out. I can now with confidence say I have R & D covered for all my clients and I have an awareness for those that will have it in the future.
50% ruled in
Through this process with Radish, I have found around 50% of our clients are eligible for R&D Tax Relief, which is great for the clients, securing cash to invest back into their businesses to help them succeed.
It’s about trust
It’s our duty as advisors to fully understand our clients and deliver them a quality service to meet their needs. Through partnering with Radish, I can say with confidence with confidence that I have R&D covered for all my clients and I have my clients trust to select and work with the best.
Working with Radish
My experience working with Radish was great. Tim is very different to other tax professionals, for Tim it’s not about quoting section numbers and showing off what you know – as nobody cares about this. He is approachable and makes it simple for the client to understand. He asks questions first, to help him explain it better to the client – absolutely no professional arrogance.
If you want 100% confidence you have R&D covered for all your clients, get in touch with Radish and they’ll quickly be able to determine which of your clients may be eligible to make a claim.
