With over 4.3 billion users, the internet has changed the world almost as rapidly as it changes itself. Companies carrying out R&D in the web and app development sphere are responsible for changing the way in which we access and manipulate information.
R&D can take place in web or app development when a technological advancement is achieved.
This can typically be achieved in three different ways: firstly if a unique technology has been created that’s peers are proprietary (i.e. recreating an already existing non-open source technology for which no explicit guidance exists) or by appreciably enhance an existing solution.
Examples of Qualifying Activities in the Web Application Sphere includes:
Claims vary significantly dependant on the size and scale of the operations and can range from thousands to millions. Please bare in mind that subcontracted development costs can often be included in your claim depending on the nature of your agreement with the subcontracted party. Also, please be aware that client led work is similarly often eligible.
It was a pleasure working with the guys at Bonham & Brook, especially considering that, with the wealth of knowledge backed up with the expertise of an ex HMRC officer, we had confidence going ahead with a claim for the first time. After successfully receiving a substantial refund, we would not hesitate doing another claim and, it goes without saying, Bonham & Brook will be our preferred partners going forward. Thank you, again.
We worked with the team at Bonham & Brook on the R&D claim that we were unaware of. To our surprise they made the whole process seamless and we received our refund from HMRC. We will definitely be using B&B again for our R&D claim to help us grow our business.
At first I believed that R&D tax credits were a little too good to be true or that my company would not be applicable. Jenson, Hannad and the team's expertise and experience reassured and guided me through the process. I had to put in approx. 1 - 2 hours work and they did the rest of the application. The first time we worked together they were able to claim for the previous 2 years, so we received a bumper double rebate. This money has helped us grow the business by having the cash to grow the team and increase our marketing budget. My business has grown thanks to their work, so I am eternally grateful.
