The R&D Tax Credit System

Spending money on new ideas (Research & Development) can be daunting, which is why so many businesses tend to let a good opportunity get away.

Tax Investigations

Elite are specialists in the world of investigations. We have had the opportunity to work with clients under investigation with HMRC. This can be a very stressful time for the taxpayer, not always fully understanding the principles behind the reasons they are being investigated. Yet help is at hand! Elite understands both HMRC and the client’s requirements and the need to get a satisfactory conclusion to any enquiry or investigation as quickly as possible. Keeping both the client and the tax man updated on events can positively impact, keeping costs to a minimum.
