    What do you do?

    In simple terms, I help companies like yours take advantage of incentives that are available for simply doing what you do best – running your business. R&D incentives are not just available for the “blue-sky, rocket science, men in white lab coats” type companies but available for all companies.  I work with a variety of high-growth, entrepreneurial and ambitious companies to prepare, submit and agree R&D claims based on activities that they do day-to-day and often see it as “this is what we do”!

    I will be able to help you develop simple methodology to submit robust R&D claims so that you receive the benefit you are entitled and free up the time to grow your business even more. You just need to tap into it, and I can help you do that. Simple.

    Why do you do it?

    I love working with companies across a full breadth of sectors – I simply love to learn and get to talk to some truly talented and bright people about the amazing work they do.  It really is a humbling experience; plus, it feeds my inner geek!  I get to hear about the blood, sweat and tears that goes into developing something that just looks so simple on the outside.

    I love seeing that lightbulb moment in a client’s face, especially when you realise the opportunities available to you. Starting a meeting where your technical staff are adamant that they were not conducting R&D and being able to articulate this to them to completely change their mind set, still gives me a thrill to this day.

    Ultimately, seeing the difference the benefit makes to a company like yours and knowing the part I played in that, is the real reward in the work I do!

    What kind of projects have you been involved in?

    I really have been involved in projects across all, across a wide range of companies (location and size) and all sorts of methodologies. With over 14 years of R&D experience, and having completed a PhD and worked in industry previously, I really am best placed to help you develop bespoke, non-onerous claim methodologies that is commensurate with the benefit they are entitled to receive.

    If you’re already claiming or if you’re not sure, then let’s talk.  Whether it’s to sense check that your existing claim methodology maximises the benefit you are entitled to or you just want explore whether you are able to claim (even if you’ve been told that you can’t before) then get in touch – what have you got to lose?

    What’s on top of your bucket list?
