Technology has disrupted just about every industry over the last decade and financial services is no exception. Insurance and investment management, as much as retail banking, were already heavily reliant on information technology but the advances now being made in innovation are disrupting and transforming the sector even further. These innovations are likely to be considered R&D for tax purposes and mean that companies qualify for R&D tax relief.

We’re FS experts who really understand your business

We’re not just tax & accounting professionals…we have a team of financial services specialists who understand understand your business. Their experience means they can have peer to peer conversations with your team to understand your projects to identify all eligible expenditure for your R&D tax claims.

Our innovative systems help to set Numis apart from the crowd and enable us to offer unique services to our clients. Whilst we view this development as an essential part of our day to day operations, Ayming UK is able to understand the advances we have made in the terms of HMRC’s R&D Tax Relief scheme. As a result we have been able to secure significant financial benefits in the form of tax relief.
