Welcome to Elevation, R&D tax credit software made for accountants, powered by GovGrant

GovGrant works in partnership with accountancy firms. We see knowledge sharing, tools and transparency as essential to our combined success. As our Accountancy Partner you will have exclusive access to Elevation, free of charge.

Elevation puts accountants in control of R&D claims for their clients. You are trained and regulated professionals who understand your clients. You should hold the tools to manage R&D claims on your clients’ behalf.

GovGrant is embracing the move toward more digitally enabled accountancy practice and we are investing in a tool that drives better compliance and integrity when it comes to R&D. Elevation also gives accountants access to wider IP and Patent Box services.

Elevation doesn’t need any specific software to run, is simple to use and is a secure platform that puts our Accounting Partners in control.

Elevation is currently made up of three tools – Platform, Foundations and Blueprint.

Platform – R&D builder for small claims

Platform takes you through a simple process to help smaller, eligible clients make a claim. Based on our experience, knowledge and benchmarked against our data, Platform makes the scheme straightforward and accessible.

Platform ensures smaller businesses get access to R&D tax relief, managed by you, their accountant, who understands your clients and the intent of HMRC tax incentives.

Platform gives you clarity about whether clients are eligible (or not) and allows you to serve smaller, low risk claims on behalf of your clients.

Foundations – Full visibility of your clients claims

Foundations gives you full visibility and transparency of your clients’ journey through their R&D tax claim meaning you are never left in the dark and know exactly where your client is in our process.

Foundations allows you to:

  • Upload client details for GovGrant to review
  • Track specific actions along the journey of the claim
  • Share documents securely
  • Monitor a particular client but also to hold an overview of your portfolio of clients

Blueprint – Knowledge, content and CPD training hub

Blueprint gives you what you need to have a confident innovation conversation with your clients.

Blueprint allows you to up-skill your team around R&D, Patent Box and innovation to improve compliance standards and protect the integrity of the HMRC schemes.

Blueprint lets accountants access, manage and register CPD hours through our articles and training events. GovGrant aims to provide useful content for you to share with your clients to encourage dialogue around R&D tax relief and other innovation incentives.
