Missed opportunities and spurious claims
The accountancy general practice provides forecasting , insights and software training . However , one missing area that it identified a few years ago was R & D . Phil Ellerby , Founder of Northern Accountants , said : “ We didn ’ t touch R & D tax because it ’ s a specialist area . The team at Northern Accountants were comfortable with what R & D was and wasn ’ t , but the structure of putting a claim together was something that we didn ’ t have the expertise or the time to do – as you have to ensure that it is both tangible and viable .” R & D reliefs support companies that
