Office Hours: Find out how to get a third of your development costs back via R&D Tax Credits

August 1, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm BST


Our Office Hours are a great way to get very specific advice on business challenges you face on a daily basis. Covering a variety of specialised areas, the session will consist of half an hour 1 on 1 with a domain expert.

This time around we’ll be welcoming Adam McCann from Claimer.

Are you developing something innovative, that you couldn’t just buy off the shelf? Then it’s very likely you are eligible for Research & Development Tax Credits, in which you can get up to 33% off your costs back in the form of a tax refund or credit, paid directly into your bank account. HMRC introduced R&D tax credits in 2000 and since then have provided billions to UK based companies undertaking activities like software or hardware development, manufacturing and engineering, construction, and pharmaceuticals – the average claim in London is £81k.

Join this session to find out more about the scheme, whether you are eligible, and how you can claim.

The Claimer platform makes claiming R&D tax credits easy, by combining technology with human expertise to produce claims much faster and more accurately, whilst significantly lowering the costs currently associated with making a claim.

Claimer connects with your accounting software to speed things up, and small claims can be completed within 20 minutes. As a result of our lower overheads, our standard fee is just 5% of your credit, capped to £10k, and all TechHub members get 20% off. The company has a 100% claim success rate, and is startup-friendly with no multi-year lock-in contracts.

Adam McCann, CEO of Claimer, previously built and ran one of the UK’s largest independent video games media companies, before selling it in 2015. It was at this startup that he discovered R&D tax credits, but found that specialist agencies generally 2-4 weeks to put claims together, and charge an enormous 20-30% of what you get back. Adam fully bootstrapped Claimer to disrupt the industry, by putting a halt to the gravy train of high fees and a high-touch, slow service. He’s a passionate full-stack developer and is also happy to discuss bootstrapping or fund raising, product development, hiring, and exiting.
