Here at GovGrant we don’t just look at your accounts – that will only tell us part of the story. Our technical experts will walk the floors to spot every opportunity and maximise your claim.

With all of the experience that GovGrant brings to the table we know where indirect costs tend to be, we know the relevant questions to ask. We have over 12 years of our own benchmarking from over 6,000 claims so we will know if your previous supplier has fallen short.

Confident that our technical reports are the best in class

On average we have increased existing claims by 200%

We add our knowledge and insight to the narrative – which gives you the best chance of having your claim fully approved. So even though we tend to identify higher claim values this doesn’t come with any additional risk. When we have made a claim on behalf of clients they have always been approved.

And of course we stand by our claims, if you face an HMRC enquiry we defend it free of charge and run that process on your behalf at no extra charge. GovGrant has an enquiry rate of less than 0.2%, compared to the industry wide rate of 14%. No wonder we are confident in delivering for our clients.

It doesn’t end with an R&D tax relief claim. GovGrant also has the expertise to claim RDA (Research and Development Allowances), a tax relief for businesses incurring capital expenditure on qualifying R&D activities.

We will also check to see if you have patents or Intellectual Property that is patentable. GovGrant will be able to identify if this is the case for you and advise on further benefits that might be available to you.

Unlike any other provider, GovGrant takes a genuinely holistic approach and thinks about the big picture. We look at things in the whole rather than breaking it down into parts – so you can be sure that your innovation is recognised and receives the full credit due.
