As a specialist rose grower, some of their key operations include production, land management, varietal testing and the technically complex area of pest control. To bring new rose products to market Whartons have to develop their own pesticide solutions, in-house. These have to not only benefit the plants and also need comply with changing regulations and Whartons’ class-leading sustainability and environmental protection standards.
Whartons’ management team had heard of the HMRC R&D Tax Credit scheme and thought it might apply to them, but were not yet claiming any relief.
Through a recommendation, our Easy R&D team were brought in and quickly shone a light on the true extent of the intensive and resource heavy R&D Whartons were carrying out. We submitted a successful first-time claim resulting in a substantial tax repayment from HMRC.
If you’re a small to medium company in the UK, you could also be claiming back up to £33 on every £100 spent on R&D. The work you do that qualifies for the R&D tax credits scheme — often embedded in the day-to-day running of your business — may surprise you.Get in touch
