In his own words
“I know that that businesses in Scotland have a proud tradition of innovation and invention so I want to make sure that they are being awarded the full range of tax benefit they are entitled to. The average claim for SMEs in Scotland is about £55k. This is such a welcome boost to business in Scotland – we need to get the message out there.”
