About the claim
How much did you know about R&D Tax Relief claims before speaking with MSC?
We heard about the possibility from our accountant and other people in the industry. In other words, we were aware that it was available but not very much beyond this.
Did you originally think that you could claim against R&D?
We knew we were doing the kind of work that the relief was created for and our accountant certainly felt that we had a reasonable case. When we had the meeting with the guys at MSC it became very apparent that we had a strong case.
What were your concerns?
Running a busy and seasonal business, we were particularly concerned about the time it will take to complete. As tax is not our area of expertise we were concerned with how much work we would have to put in, to get the claim processed.
How did you find the process of working with MSC?
It was straightforward and easy; The team at MSC specified the information they required us to supply and proceeded to run and conclude the process completely independently. Their experience in the field is invaluable and they therefore know exactly what to look for to make a successful, rapid claim.
Would you recommend them to others in your industry?
Absolutely. I would say that on face value the service may appear expensive but it’s worth it both from time-saving and increased chances of concluding a successful claim. In our case, had we not worked with the team at MSC we will not have submitted the claim in time.
