Why we do what we do

Keeping tax simple delivers big benefits.

When it comes to your R&D tax claim, Simple makes sense.

We are R&D Tax Claim specialists with many happy clients as reference
We understand the tech space intimately and are in a strong position to identify R&D Tax claim opportunities for even the most technically challenging and complex businesses
We know how to navigate through this complicated and specialised area of tax law to make it work for you
We understand how HMRC assess R&D claims which means your claim is less likely to be challenged by HMRC, compared to submitting your own claim or using an accountant with little R&D experience. 
If your claim is subject to an enquiry, we are well placed to deal with that efficiently. The cost of any investigation would be covered by our fee protection insurance which is covered with every claim submission.

When you partner with us, we work together to ensure that you are able to claim the full amount of R&D tax credit based on your spend. This gives you all the space and time you need to focus on your core business. After all, that’s what you do best – we’re always available when you need us.

The Simple difference

We get it, we’re entrepreneurs too.
