We usually charge 5% percentage of either your tax credit (for loss-making companies) or tax saving (for profit-making companies), but only after the claim is successful. So for example, if you get back £50,000, our fee would be £2,500 + VAT.
Do I have to do more work than with a traditional specialist?
No - it's actually less work! There are no word documents or spreadsheets to fill in - Claimer's platform streamlines the process of getting your information to us. After that, our experts put your claim together.
Do you have a minimum or maximum fee?
Our minimum fee is £750 (per claim) - For example, our fee for a £5,000 claim will be £750 + VAT.
Our maximum fee is £10,000 (per claim) - For example our fee for a £250,000 claim will be capped at £10,000 + VAT.
Do you require us to commit to submitting multiple claims?
No - we feel loyalty should be earned. If you decide not to use us again you are free to switch to another service.
Why is your fee so much lower than others?
Claimer is the leading technology company in the R&D space: both our customer facing platform and back-office platform make the whole process significantly more efficient. The saving in overheads that we make is passed on to you.
Do you submit the claim to HMRC? What about enquiries?
Claimer's in-house accountants submit the claim on your behalf, and we keep your accountant in the loop. In the unlikely event of an HMRC enquiry, our team handles all HMRC communication for you. To date, we've never had a single claim rejected or reduced.
How do you calculate fees for qualfying capital assets?
If costs qualifying for R&D relief are capitalised, we will ignore the benefit of receiving a tax deduction for the original cost of the assets in our fee calculations.
E.g. A Ltd spends £1,000 on software costs which are capitalised as intangible assets and fully qualify for SME R&D relief. None of the costs has been amortised. This reduces the taxable profits of A Ltd by £2,300 (£1,000 x 130% + £1,000). However, Claimer will calculate its fees based on a benefit of £1,300 reduction in profits only.
