What we did
Ayming’s software specialists carried out detailed technical interviews with key members of the intu team to evaluate the various R&D projects and identify qualifying innovation. Ayming’s tech team produced robust, comprehensive R&D tax relief claims that showed a clear understanding of the distinction between a commercial project and an eligible project for R&D tax purposes. This approach helps to speed up the claims process by creating a collaborative environment and ensured Ayming’s technical team had peer to peer conversations with intu’s technical experts.
In just 3 weeks, Ayming was able to conduct the technical interviews and complete the entire claims process, which typically takes 4 – 6 weeks.
