Case Study: Donald Engineering's Enhanced Tax Relief

Donald Engineering and Design Limited are a small engineering firm based just outside Carlisle, which carries out design and development work for companies in the food, composites and road-marking industries.

The firm, unaware of the fact that its work qualified for a significantly enhanced tax relief, were approached by Armstrong Watson in November 2007, with the aim to identify if the company was eligible for the Research & Development tax relief available to companies carrying out qualifying activities.

As a result, Armstrong Watson did indeed identify that the firm had carried out qualifying activities and as a result of the claims prepared by Armstrong Watson, the client saved over £3,000 in tax for the year to 30 April 2007 and over £5,000 in tax for the year to 30 April 2008.
