Claim Value: £100,000
"After completing a series of claims over five years, APA received a total claim of around £100,000"
A.P.A Design Consultants Ltd (APA), a global leader in engineering concept and design work for construction and rail industries, worked with randd to submit a R&D tax credits claim to HMRC. After completing a series of claims over five years, APA received a total claim of aproximately £100,000.
Since 1992, APA have developed a strong reputation for delivering high quality engineering concept work for the transport industries. Chris Cuff and Gordon McNaboe formed a partnership to build APA into the outstanding consultancy it is today, with an expert team supporting clients, mainly within the transport industry.
APA has undertaken a large amount of R&D work, finding bespoke solutions to meet client needs, and the successful R&D tax credits claims have enabled APA to strengthen the business through recruiting new talent, investing in resources and upgrading design software. This has increased the company’s ability to carry out more research and development work, pushing technological breakthroughs and undertaking larger projects.
Gordon McNaboe commented on the scheme: “R&D tax credits have enabled APA to strengthen the business through recruiting new talent, investing in resources and upgrading design software…I strongly recommend any company who conducts any sort of research and development to explore the possibility of making an R&D tax credit claim.”
