What are the benefits of outsourcing tax and accountancy services for my tech business?

Many businesses that operate within the field of technology could be eligible for tax relief. By contacting experienced tax advisors, your business may be able to claim tax relief, which will allow you to spend more on developing your business for the future. You may also be able to get expert advice on your business plans, as well as explore options to raise capital for your business.

Not only this, but by outsourcing your tax and accountancy services, you can help ensure that you are compliant with current legislation. This can boost investors confidence in your business, helping to propel it to future success.


How can Edwards Accountants help?

As experienced tax advisors based in the Midlands, we are experts in R&D tax credits.  Many of our clients, ranging from small spinouts from universities to subsidiaries of large international groups, have received large tax refunds. We have always charged a reasonable fixed fee rather than a percentage cut, ensuring our clients get more value for their money.

We are routinely recommended by venture capitalists as well as business angel networks who have worked with us for many years. Not only do we work closely with your business to establish lasting relationships, but we work as efficiently as possible to keep fees to a minimum.

To find out how we can assist your tech business with tax and accountancy services, please contact us.

No, your R&D expenditure claim value is the same regardless of the accounting policy applied for development expenditure. That means that capitalising your development expenditure as an intangible asset and later filing an R&D claim will not affect the size of the refund.

For small- and medium-sized enterprises, the enhancement rate is 86%, if all HMRC criteria are met.

There are certain circumstances in which SEIS can be claimed by company founders, namely when there are three or more founders of a single company. The company must be in its very early stages and the founders must be paid or unpaid directors of the company, but not employees.

A founder aiming to benefit from SEIS should understand that this is a very tricky subject to navigate successfully and should seek advice from a qualified financial professional before incorporating the company.

If you have received a grant from Innovate UK, your company may have to arrange an independent accounts report from a registered auditor as listed on the Innovate UK register. Edwards Accountants is registered in this way and can provide a quick and clear audit of your claim expenditure to satisfy Innovate UK that the claim is valid and therefore payable.

Provided that there are reasonable accounting records with no outstanding issues and the flow of information is clear, we can usually complete the audit and provide a letter within one week.

As an independent accountant, reviewing client projections and providing feedback is one of our most common jobs. It is a crucial part of successful business management and can often be a complex task to approach for business owners, so we can help double check that your information is correct and help ensure your projections are more accurate.

In fact, we can even handle the full projection process on your behalf, utilising the information you provide to guarantee a more accurate forecast of your financial situation. This can better prepare you for the future and we can be contacted at any time to help with any changes.

The main benefit of outsourcing your accounting is that you can concentrate on running your business to the best of your ability, rather than spending several hours on bookkeeping and accounting. This can help you improve your customer service, streamline your operations, and more.

Additionally, you can rest assured knowing that your accountancy records will always be up to date and accurate, without the worry that the information you are looking at is somehow incorrect.

Plus, we ensure that you are always operating as tax-efficiently as possible, preventing you from overpaying unnecessarily and using all available reliefs.
