Well the celebrations of Christmas and New Year are a distant memory as 2015 has started out extremely busy and exciting here at Aitken2.
We have been working hard to educate companies in the East Riding of Yorkshire about the R&D Tax Credit Scheme and prove it’s an opportunity not to be missed. We are targeting local companies, around 20 per week to encourage a face to face meeting with Aitken2 to allow us to talk you through the simple process. The feedback we have received so far has been extremely positive and it’s great to see companies realising that the R&D Tax Credit Scheme is applicable for their business and they will most likely be eligible.
To clear up any confusion about how it will affect your relationship with your accountant and the possible input of HMRC we have improved our website to provide more detailed information on these areas. We would like to stress it’s not our aim to disrupt your relationship with your accountant; we see them as a key partner in the R&D Tax Credit claim process. We are here to guide you through the process by providing you with a dedicated claim manager that will work with you until the claim is complete.
We were busy working on 5 claims in December and the average turnaround from the initial meeting with Aitken2 to a refund from HMRC is looking to be a 6-10 week process. That’s really not long to make an investment in a possible refund for your company – especially when it’s our job to do most of the work!
Finally, we are proud to announce that Aitken2 are the official Hessle Cricket Club shirt sponsors! It’s great to support a local sporting club and one that we are very passionate about.
