For a profitable company, an R&D claim reduces its profits chargeable to corporation tax.


For a loss-making company, R&D claims let you surrender this for a cash repayment.

Qualifying companies can go back up to two years, and claim every year going forwards, so for a first time claimant, you can often make 3 claims in a short period of time.  This often results in substantial amounts of tax credit or cash to reinvest in your business.

What does it cost?

There is no cost to you unless Aspen Waite are successful. It is a risk free service to you and you company.  The Aspen Waite fee covers everything from start to finish and there are no hidden extras. Aspen Waite guarantee to help any qualifying company - anywhere, regardless of size of fee.
