Gerry Allan


Gerry has a lifetime’s experience in the IT industry, qualifying with a degree in Computer Science, and then leading development teams in designing and implementing innovative software products. He has worked at senior level for large corporates and also set up, owned and managed small Software Companies to service the technical needs of SME’s in a variety of industries.

The experience gained in understanding how different businesses operate, in order to develop and implement software solutions, means he is comfortable with understanding the procedures and terminologies inherent in a wide range of industries, which has been of great benefit in gathering the information needed to compile the “Technical Justifications” required to back up R&D Tax Credit Claims.

He has been able to assist companies in such diverse areas as Leather Specialists, Excavating Systems, Roll Forming Machinery Designers, and with software development claims in Debt Management and Dairy Systems suppliers, making very successful and rewarding claims which have allowed the companies to fund the continuation of further R&D projects to keep them in the forefront of their industries.

He says he is slightly frustrated that there weren’t companies like RandD Tax around to advise on the benefits of claiming Tax Credits when he owned Software Development companies !!
