What are R and D tax credits?


Research and Development (R&D) tax relief is awarded to businesses that invest in innovation. This innovation can be in the form of developing new systems, processes, products, materials, devices, or any changes to the way your business works. Claims submitted under the R&D regimes stem from activity undertaken where the aim has been to achieve an advance in either science or technology through the development of new and/or significant improvement of products, devices, materials and systems.

As R&D tax credit experts, we specialise in securing claims that are above the national average. It’s thanks to a refreshingly different approach which we believe is unique among tax consultancies.

Our team is led by highly skilled engineers and accountants who all share forensic attention to detail and an eye for the opportunity for the client to save money.

This means we can quickly identify those projects eligible for tax relief, including investments in new products, services, software and processes.

Unique formula
Our specialist expertise means we achieve a significant boost to the value of all our claims. Due to our specialists’ tactical approach, our success rate is above the national average.

Understanding and identifying qualifying projects is what we do. And most importantly, we find the supporting evidence for a successful HMRC claim.

Integrity in business is key and that’s why we are diligent in ensuring only the most robust of processes are followed. There’s the added reassurance of a stringent and fully tested checking process before claims are approved for submission to HMRC. Indemnity is also included for all our clients for additional peace of mind – although it’s never been needed.

People are what makes us special. At ZLX you’ll find a handpicked team of experienced and approachable high-calibre specialists. Within the skillset is front line R&D and innovation project leadership for global brands, senior-level taxation planning, chartered accountants plus an efficient and proactive support team.

Founder Stephen McCallion has over 30 years of experience at the leading edge of engineering innovation and business growth.
