Technology Supported by Advisors

Although RD Relief is an online R&D Tax Credit claim platform, we have expert R&D Tax Advisors to support you, whether you need support or a specific deliverable.
As with other types of Technology, RD Relief does not replace human interaction, but it does vastly increase ease, quality and cost.

General information about the R&D Tax Advisor Role

Since the release of the R&D Tax Credit guidelines, R&D Tax Advisors have been crucial in helping companies to quantify, support and maximise their R&D Tax Claims.
Professional service companies typically have two types of R&D advisor; those from tax backgrounds and those from specific Science and Technology backgrounds.

Our Advisors Background

RD Relief has a passionate team from leading industry background. Please get in touch, and we can arrange for you to speak with the actual advisor/s who could work on your claim.
With the creation of the RD Relief technology, the role of the R&D Tax Advisor changes. Advisors are now no longer required for all claims, and where they are still needed, their involvement evolves.

Activities Historically Undertaken by R&D Advisors

Typically, these include the following:
  • Explaining R&D guidelines and Legislation
  • Co-ordinating and project managing
  • Writing reports to support the claim (summarising claim figures, provide company background and claim methodology)
  • Drafting scientific and technological descriptions of example projects
  • Transforming spreadsheets and calculating the value of claims, apportioned between the different R&D regimes.
With the advance in R&D claim preparation technology achieved by RD Relief, these tasks have evolved. RD Relief drives efficiency, so R&D advisors can now focus purely on value-add activities - improving claim efficiency and cost.

How we are Different

Not only does RD Relief have talented R&D advisors from industry backgrounds, but we also have the industry-leading R&D claim software.
This software ensures that our advisors need not spend time on repetitive activities that are common across companies, but instead they can focus precisely on the value-add of what your company needs.

Our Advice

Firstly, we recommend companies to research and decide whether they need an advisor at all, or whether a self-service online approach would fit your needs - we are happy to find out more and advise on this. Should you want a personal approach to your claim and thus need a professional advisor, we always recommend that you find out more about the specific advisor that will be part of our your process day to day before you go ahead (lot's of companies send senior individuals for sales meetings that won't be involved in actual claims). Get in touch, and we will match the perfect specialist to your needs.
