"A VERY EFFICIENT AND THOROUGH SERVICE, LEYTON IS NOW AN ESSENTIAL CONNECTION"
CASE STUDIESSOFTWARE COMPANY
A software company that creates custom software applications and websites.
The R&D Tax Credit, a complex tool
"We were neither aware of the fact that the UK government had a R&D tax relief system in place to help businesses, nor that our type of activity could qualify. Most of our software developments are based on the use of open source technologies but given the inability of these solutions to work together our teams often have to extend their functionalities. They also develop algorithms to solve incompatibility issues and system integration difficulties."
Leyton was an obvious partnership for us
"With no knowledge on this scheme it was difficult for us to collect relevant information to prepare and submit the claim. Furthermore, as we are fully involved in our development programs we did not have the resources to dedicate ourselves in this time-consuming process. The fact that Leyton had an in-house software engineer was crucial in helping us to determine which projects could qualify for this scheme. Their analytical interview approach and technical knowledge were invaluable."
Outstanding technical expertise
"Leyton guided us through every step of the process from the introduction of the scheme to the submission of the claim to HMRC. Their undertaking of the technical report on our behalf was essential to our claim's success not only because it meant that we could concentrate resources on our business but because they knew exactly what HMRC was looking to ascertain and their application of legislative understanding was pivotal. Leyton's communication throughout the process was excellent and even after the claim was submitted we were regularly updated about its progress."
The value of the RDTC for us
"Thanks to Leyton's expert advice we have realised that a very large proportion of our operations are in fact eligible for R&D tax relief. With their involvement, we have been successful in our first ever R&D tax relief claim and even helping us receive a significant amount as a cash refund. We have developed a strong partnership with Leyton and will definitely seek their advice when claiming in future."
