The Smart Accountants

Sector: Accountancy

The Smart Accountants are an expert team of bookkeeping and accounting professionals based in Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire. They support hundreds of small businesses across the country through their experts and their innovative online solutions. We are proud to be in a long-term partnership with The Smart Accountants supplying specialist R&D tax credit services to their clients.

The Challenge

The Smart Accountants are a multi-disciplinary practice with UK-wider reach, but they didn’t have the depth of specialist resources needed to provide a comprehensive R&D tax credits service. With the R&D tax scheme becoming more widely understood across their client base, they realised that they were potentially missing out on valuable opportunities to better support their clients and to help them unlock the tax rebates that their clients deserved.

The Solution

The Easy R&D partnership team has worked with The Smart Accountants since 2019, servicing a wide range of their customers, delivering an additional added-value R&D tax credits service. With a combination of The Smart Accountants’ strong client relationships and added value marketing and content assets provided by Easy R&D’s tax experts, a significant new revenue stream and a new component to their service.

In the last three years, we have made successful claims totalling over £2.5 million on behalf of their clients, bringing valuable capital back from HMRC into their customers’ balance sheets. One Smart Accountants client, a technical laboratory working on COVID responses, required special attention since the start of the pandemic; they alone have now successfully claimed in excess of £743,000 in R&D Tax Credits, fuelling their research, innovation and growth. 

The Smart Accountants

The great thing about working with Easy R&D is the level of personal support and service that they offer us and our clients. They really do go the extra mile and make it easy to succeed together. We’re now planning to grow our R&D tax credit customer base by 20 clients a year, creating another value-add service and a healthy stream of growing rebates for our clients.
