R&D Tax Credits Manager

Kath is ammu’s R&D Tax Credits Manager. Alongside Iain and the ammu tax team, she works with a range of small and medium sized companies helping them to identify works, projects and processes that could qualify for HMRC’s R&D Tax Credits Scheme.

She advises business owners, directors and senior engineers and technical managers on all aspects of R&D Tax Credit claims; from checking eligibility and identifying relevant projects to writing and submitting successful claims on their behalf.

Kath is not sector or industry specific; she focusses on businesses who innovate and undertake either formal or informal R&D in order to overcome industry and practical uncertainties.

Businesses that are seeking to deliver a new product, procedure or process, or to discover a better, more efficient or a brand new way of doing things.

In the UK most of this applies in the makers and creators and scientific sectors and this is where Kath spends most of her working week.

However, in recent years she has seen significant forward steps being taken in transport, retailing and wholesaling and she is helping an increasing number of companies in these sectors who are using the benefits big tech is giving to small businesses to make advancements.

When she is not on the road (she spends a good number of hours out and about visiting clients, looking at their new machines and the the outcome of re-invested R&D Tax Credit claim funds in new production facilities, and even further R&D) or in the office, Kath likes to travel. Although she takes another mode of transport for pleasure!
