R&D Tax Credit Workshop for Accountants
We will be running a free CPD workshop for accountancy firms at the Marriott Hotel, Portsmouth on Wednesday 18th March, 2015 from 11.30 to 14.30 including a hot buffet lunch. This workshop has been very successfully run over the past year, leading to new R&D tax relieve claims which generated tax savings for claimant companies and fees for our accountant partners.
The workshop will last between 1.5 hours and 2 hours, depending on questions, and the format will be interactive. The focus will be mainly on the SME (Small and Medium Enterprise) R&D tax relief/credit scheme. The aim is to help you and your colleagues to: –
R&D Tax Workshop Agenda
