Tim Walsh BSc CTA MBA, REGIONAL DIRECTOR AT RandDTaxAs a Chartered Tax Adviser, Tim is well versed in interpreting complex Tax legislation, translating it into layman's terms and conveying it to business owners. Tim assists SMEs, which have taken the financial risk to invest in ground-breaking or innovative improvements, to claim for their R and D tax credits.

Amongst others, Tim has assisted SMEs in the UK, MNCs in Cambodia and a winery in Chile, to mitigate their tax liabilities and grow their businesses. As MD of a small firm of Recovery Auditors, Tim advised large UK companies on system and process improvements and recovered over £3.5m in inadvertent overpayments and under-claimed income.

RandDTaxThis is one of the largest independently owned specialist R&D consultancies in the UK, and has helped over 1,300 companies gain more than £145m in tax relief and tax credits, whilst maintaining a 100% success record, yet they are small enough to care and give personalised service.

Their service includes:

  • In-depth review of all the company’s activities – not just the obvious areas of R&D.
  • Interviews with key staff – to discuss the role of all staff.
  • Full technical report writing – to reduce the effort required by our clients.
  • Guidance on record-keeping improvements – to ensure the claim is as robust as possible.
  • Preparation of full R&D report and an easy schedule for accountants to amend CT600s and tax computations.
  • Follow up with HMRC until payment is received.

They offer a free audit for companies that have claimed before, to ensure they are maximising their claim and not exposing themselves to compliance risk through the reports they are submitting or the records they are keeping. They also take on and defend cases where bona fide R&D claims are being challenged by HMRC. Visit their website
