Free seminar to help Harborough businesses claim research and development funding

Businesses in the Harborough area may be able to claim thousands of pounds in research and development (R&D) tax credits according to Harborough based R&D specialists who are running a free seminar next month (September) for local businesses.

Companies are invited to attend the half day event which is being held by R&T Consultants at the Market Harborough Innovation Centre on 17th September from 9.30 am until lunchtime. Delegates will learn how to claim R&D tax credits as well as finding out about patents rights as part of the centre’s Spark initiative.

The seminar will include a presentation by Alan Bamford, HMRC Inspector of Taxes and Richard J. Cullum, Managing Partner of R&T Consultants. The event will also include real life examples of how R&D funding can help companies. Geoff Collier, Managing Partner of Pro Active Finance Limited will also be joining the panel to offer advice.

The government’s definition of research and development is very broad and it is estimated that tens of millions of pounds in tax credits are unclaimed by smaller companies every year. Research and development takes place in a variety of industries, from water innovation to computer technology.

“Unfortunately, many small businesses believe that only large companies are able to claim,” explains Richard Cullum. “The event at the Innovation Centre will help businesses determine their eligibility. New technology is vital if we want to grow the UK economy, yet many smaller businesses don’t claim the funding that they are entitled to that will generate this growth.  The seminar aims to clarify the issue for local businesses.”
