Relationship with Ayming
Ayming’s engagement with Osprey kicked off in March 2022 after Ayming had reviewed Osprey’s previous R&D tax claim, which they had produced in-house. Ayming’s tech and software expert team reviewed Osprey’s previous claim, and the recommendations resulted in a significant uplift in the benefit received from HMRC.
What Ayming did
The Ayming team worked closely with several key Osprey contacts, including having Kevin Morris as an R&D champion across the engagement, adding colour and context to the technical conversations. Those conversations covered different areas of the business from Data to the over-arching Architecture.
The Ayming team then framed the accompanying write-up for HMRC as a holistic narrative, highlighting several of the key areas of the work undertaken across the Osprey platform.
Results & Innovation
The full engagement with Osprey was delivered within six weeks, in line with their accountant’s end of year deadline. The review Ayming carried out on the previous R&D claim led to an uplift of 17% in benefit received from HMRC.
