Advantages of Online Claim Preparation
Relative to manual R&D preparation, preparing your R&D Tax Credits online has many significant benefits:
Increased consistency of:
Eligibility (and Legislative) Briefings (which can be watched multiple times at your team's leisure)
Assessments of the Qualifying Expenditure
Deliverables (e.g. HMRC report)
No more manual errors in either claim quantification or supporting documentation.
Complete control to work on the claim whenever you require.
Enhanced Security. Your data will be locked down on our secure servers, rather than in a (hopefully) password protected spreadsheet on multiple advisor laptops/email accounts.
Lower Costs (advisor time is expensive, software is much less costly).
Claiming R&D Tax Credits is Now Easy and Cost Effective.
Software Efficiency, Accuracy and Cost
"Time is expensive. Time for good R&D Tax consultants is even more so."
Getting the 'right' advice is often worth the cost, as this can help to maximise and robustly support your claim. In short, the value of an R&D claim benefit often outstrips the cost of the specialist services.
With RD Relief you have the best of both worlds. Our advanced technology provides carefully crafted, tailored advice (from the leading experts in the field) that is relevant to your industry. These advanced workflows increase consistency between eligibility assessments of your R&D projects undertaken by different 'competent professionals' and ensures you have a reliable, auditable, process. Where is specialist 'human' advice is required, then this can be purchased additionally - meaning that you never pay for routine manual activities that are common across claims.

Prepare Multiple Claim Periods in Parallel
HMRC allow companies to look back at two prior claim periods for their R&D Tax Credits Claims.
For efficiency, it can sometimes be better for companies to prepare multiple R&D Tax Credits claims simultaneously. Amongst many efficiency gains, this means your Science and Technical teams can efficiently assess the eligibility of up to three years together.
RD Relief supports companies to prepare up to three claim periods simultaneously to leverage this efficiency through the online platform.
For clients using unsupported systems, RD Relief allows spreadsheets of data to be imported. For clients with no such data, then the technology allows the direct input of data.

Registration correspondence is only allowed between email addresses registered with the company's official domain (e.g. An RD Relief account cannot be created through public access email addresses such as Hotmail, Gmail and Yahoo).
