R&D Tax Credits

Corrugated packaging specialist Dairi-Pak benefits from successful relief claims

“We see innovation and problem solving is part of our everyday work at Dairi-Pak, so we weren’t sure whether we’d qualify for R&D Tax Relief.  Ayming UK were very quickly able to get to grips with our business and demonstrate to us that, with the support of their technical and financial experts, we could in fact benefit from a successful relief claim."


-  Ian Ford, Group Operations Director, Dairi-Pak
