R&D tax relief courses at Redcliffe are delivered by the Director of a consultancy company specialising in taxation, share scheme advice, reward and lecturing. He has developed a specialised share scheme service for small companies and advises FTSE companies on communication. The lecturing side of his work covers most aspects of Direct Taxation but his particular interests include employment taxation and transfer pricing, which poses unusual conceptual challenges.

With almost 9 years dedicated to Henderson before the above, he led the Share Schemes team for part of this time.

This specialist took the level 7 CIPD Masters qualification whilst at Henderson. Before Henderson, he was with Australian Mutual Provident (AMP) and helped set up one of the first Share Incentive Plans (SIP) for large companies in 2001. It was so unusual at the time that the Revenue phoned the trainer to find out how they could encourage more large companies to adopt SIP.

R&D tax relief courses are delivered by an expert who began his career in taxation. For the following 16 years, he worked in three of the “Big Four” accountancy firms before landing a Senior Manager role with Deloitte & Touche having worked on issues such as profit-related pay, share schemes, expatriate tax, tax investigations, reward management, US taxation, transfer pricing and corporate tax.

Away from work, our trainer likes cricket, history, skiing, tennis and gardening. He gives lectures on history which helps keep his presentation skills fresh.

R&D Tax Credit training equips participants with the necessary skills to identify R&D opportunities. Sessions provide an understanding of the principles underlying R&D claims, how they are changing over the next 12 months and how you can prepare.

R&D Tax Relief courses at Redcliffe Training take a practical look at claims while considering developments over the last 12 months. Training includes the FA2023 and HMRC’s enforcement action.

Differentiating itself from similar courses, our training considers case law research and development allowances in the courts and how this will affect future R&D claims.

Sessions are delivered by a specialist with actual dedicated industry experience and not just information they have learned in a classroom. Because of this, participants find our training informative and engaging.

R&D Tax Relief courses are pertinent to anyone who either advises on R&D expenditure claims or is required to review them as part of the process of filing a CT600. Auditors, tax advisors and in-house staff by R&D tax consultants will greatly benefit.

April 2023 saw the most radical changes to research and development tax relief since the inception of the R&D Expenditure Credit.

The trend for increasing R&D tax deductions for small companies was dramatically reversed. In response to increased concerns about fraudulent claims, the compliance regime has been tightened with new disclosure requirements and responsibilities.

Recent arrests for allegedly fraudulent R&D claims have also highlighted the role that agents have in complying not only with tax legislation but also with the code of conduct of their professional regulatory body.

Tax reliefs for R&D remain an attractive incentive to carry out R&D in the UK. One, however, needs to recognise the changing rules on R&D and also the further changes that are due to take place in 2024. R&D tax credit training at Redcliffe ensures delegates leave training fully informed.
