Research and development claims in the renewable energy industry. 

It's not that easy being green, but claiming R&D could make it a lot easier.

Are you one of the many business trying to save our planet through developing cleaner, more sustainable energy solutions? If you are then we can help fund your next big project with R&D Tax Credits.


Why is R&D important in the Renewable Energy industry?

The need for cleaner and more sustainable energy solutions is greater than ever. Companies in the UK’s renewable energy sector are constantly making massive strides in securing our transition into a greener, more eco friendly tomorrow. Research and development plays a massive roll in this as the only way to make better alternative energy solutions is through constant innovation. The UK government has set a number of targets regarding our carbon footprint to be met over the next 3 decades and this is only doable through the development of new technologies and the improvement of existing ones.

Companies overcoming these technological and scientific uncertainties can continue to do so with the help of R&D Tax Credits. By completing projects in this sector, a business is entitled to claim back between 19% and 33% of qualifying spend to allow them to continue works on this sort of project in the future. This is a massive boost that can enable a project to meet its full potential without running out of funding.

"To R&, I wanted to send this testimonial for your work on our R&D Tax return. We never thought we had a claim for R&D but after a call, you said there may be scope to make a claim based on some of the work we do. You effortlessly reviewed several projects that we do and suggested we had a claim that we could back date two years later. Last week we received a payment over £5,000 which we would never have had without your knowledge and support. I could not be happier with how simple you made the process and thank you for your patience waiting for details from me! We have already collated evidence for this year’s claim and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you!"

The family run business offer a full design and install service for signage in an array of products such as vehicle graphics and wrapping, shop signs, graphics, boards, and banners. The qualifying projects included solving problems on site; making alterations to designs to suit a specific setting; and research into how different materials, glues and paints react when used together. This cash injection will allow the company to invest in themselves and continue to grow.

“I’d like to thank Dan for all his work in the background securing us a R&D tax credit. As a company we were unaware of the fact we could claim tax back on the research and development part of our business and had always accepted it of as an expense we could do nothing about. However, after a short conversation with Dan, we decided to ask R& to act on our behalf and this has ended up with the refund by the tax department being paid into our bank. I wish we’d investigated this years ago as the amount was almost £29,000, which makes the amount we pay in tax a little more tolerable.”

"We’d like to thank Dan and the team at R& for helping us with our recent R&D claim. After a challenging year with COVID and uncertainty in the construction market, a large cash injection was exactly what we needed to ensure we could continue paying suppliers on time and continue with current works with no financial restrictions. With the help of Dan’s team we were able to claim over more than £70,000 back for our innovations and we couldn’t be happier. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend R& and we will continue to use their service in future."
