Tim Roberts

Adsertor

“The service and communication between the Research and Development team and ourselves was good, we were kept up to date along the way.

I would highly recommend Catax services.”

Kevin Bassinder

The Barnsley Chronicle Ltd

“We have worked with Catax for each of our last 3 financial accounting period year ends and they have helped us to identify areas of research and development that would qualify for enhanced corporation tax relief. Not only did they identify areas that you might not ordinarily think would qualify for the enhanced allowance, but they see the process right through until the tax refund drops into your bank account! I have been thoroughly impressed with the way they conduct themselves and got to know our business and we have enjoyed a successful 3 year partnership with them for 3 years now. I do not hesitate in recommending their services to help businesses reclaim what is rightly theirs under this scheme.”

Mhorvan Sherret

Matrix Risk Control (UK) Ltd

“When we engaged with CATAX regarding our R&D claim, I have to be honest and say that I really thought that what was being suggested was too good to be true and was sceptical that they could deliver what was promised. I am delighted to say that I was proved entirely wrong throughout the process as a very professional and diligent service was provided from start to finish. Catax took all the pain out of a potentially overwhelming process and successfully concluded a claim to HMRC in a matter of weeks.”

Nick Ditton

TaxAssist (Ashford)

“Setting up the platform was painless and only took a few minutes. Nearly all clients simply filled in the relevant details and RD Tax dealt with the whole thing. At this point it looks like nearly 20% of our clients will be eligible to make a claim providing us with delighted clients and another income stream for the practise with virtually no effort!”

Bharat Vanza

Sterling Chartered Accountants Partnership

“CATAX whom we’ve used for our other services for a few years helped to assist our clients for their RD Tax Credits in circumstances where it was not that clear cut, as well as explained the availability of the RD tax credit on a much wider basis.”

Duncan M Walker

Duncan Walker Partnership Ltd & Badgar Limited

“Working in partnership with Catax was a pleasure they made the whole process really smooth and professional for my client and in turn enhanced my reputation. My client was delighted when they received a R & D tax credit they did not know they qualified for”

Ade Perryman

4291 Ltd

“As an accountant having a link up with Catax has been invaluable to us. We can assist our clients with further beneficial services provided by a company that is efficient, proactive, and thoroughly professional.”

Christopher Whitehouse

NextPhase Development Ltd

“Our aim at NextPhase is to be continuously innovative and increasingly efficient in all areas of our business so what a pleasant surprise it was to discover that work we were already doing was eligible for R&D tax relief! We first approached Catax following a referral from a business associate in 2016 and being a professional services company our expectations were low. However after a brief initial phone call to discuss our projects, a reasonably painless visit from an auditor and providing the necessary financial information we left it in Catax’s capable hands and it didn’t take long for confirmation to come back that our claim was successful. Since then we have undergone our second audit and the process was even more straightforward! We recommend Catax, their expert team are very helpful and the relief received was well worth the time spent.”

Kevan Wakerley

Finance Director of Excalon

“We have been using Catax for our Research & Development tax relief since 2015 and have received excellent service, we have received a rebate on our R&D related costs from 2014 totalling over £306,000 to date, going up year on year. Catax has made this entire process smooth from initial technical call through to receiving our rebate, we wouldn’t have had the knowledge or skills to be able to process these claims as efficiently and effectively without them.”

Simon Young

Director of SF Taylor

“We have been working with Catax since 2014 on our Research & Development tax relief claims. Catax has been able to identify R&D going back to 2012, over the last few years we have received a significant rebate. We are thrilled with the service Catax has provided as they have always been professional and communicative throughout this processes, a process that we would not have been able to do without them. The whole procedure has been painless, with all the legwork undertaken by Catax.”

David Broomhead

Director of Doublezero Solutions

“We were first approached by Catax in early 2017 with regards to claiming for Research & Development Tax Relief.  Catax identified our R&D spend over the past 2 tax years, going back as far as 2015. As a result, we are delighted that we have now received a total rebate of £13,549.23 for the Research & Development we have undertaken. The service provided has always been excellent, with clear communication and dedication to helping my business get the most out of the process. Catax made this process simple with their dedicated team of experts, I would highly recommend their services and will continue to utilise them myself.”

Grant MacFarlane

CEO & Founder of Macfarlane Media Ltd

“When approached by Catax about the potential of making an R&D claim, we were unsure if and how we would qualify. Catax worked alongside us to understand our business and the work we had undertaken, helping to secure more than we could ever have imagined! By securing this tax relief we are able to reinvest in our business continuing to develop as one of the UK’s leading specialist digital agencies. I would highly recommend any business to speak to Catax about their R&D claim”

James Waring

Finance Director of Cenergist Ltd

“We saw Catax present at a local networking event and decided to pursue our R&D claim with them. From day one Catax were great to deal with, keeping us informed of our progress throughout. Their attention to detail and knowledge of the legislation meant that we saw a substantial return, allowing us to continue to invest in ongoing and future projects. We would certainly recommend any small or medium size business to speak with Catax.”

James Ovenden

Director of Ovendens UK Limited

“We had never heard of R&D tax relief and were delighted when Catax identified that we were eligible to make a claim. The whole process was very straightforward, with little input from ourselves. We would encourage any business to speak with Catax!”

Areas of R&D

The aim was to develop a high quality, robust system achieving functional parity with turn-key systems, within a more palatable budget.

Dave Trowell

Managing Director of Allasso Recycling Ltd

“This was the first time we had claimed R&D tax credits and the process was smooth and issue free with the help from Catax. We were guided through each stage of the process and ended up with a fantastic result, having received over £80,000 in R&D tax credits.  I would recommend anyone that isn’t claiming for R&D to speak with Catax.”

Vince Gibbs

Managing Director of Gibbs Surfacing Ltd

“We were very pleased with services provided by Catax. The staff were very friendly, informative and helpful throughout the whole process keeping our time involved to a minimum.  They took the time to understand our business and processes to make sure no R&D was missed in our claim.  We received over £203,000 in R&D tax credits which has allowed us to further invest into our business and new projects.  We would not hesitate to recommend Catax to others considering an R&D claim”

Stephen Durrans

Managing Director of Jay-Be

I would like to take this opportunity to comment on your very efficient handling of our R&D Tax Claim. As you know we have claimed for a full two yrs ( 2014 / 15 ) which proved very successful literally removing all our Tax Liability over the two yrs. We are in the process of claiming this 2016 Tax Yr and hopefully looking forward to equal success.

Like all busy Businesses, we didn’t realise the value of the legislation and it wasn’t obvious what would be allowed under the scheme.
With your simple non-intrusive method of working and understanding of our Business,  we have recovered more Tax than we ever expected which can be re-invested in the Business for future growth.

I can do no more than recommend the whole process”

Richard Hoyes

Managing Director of Premier Hank Dyers

“Working with Catax was such a simple process, I had no idea that much of our business activity would qualify for tax relief. It was certainly worthwhile for Premier Hank Dyers Ltd”

Simon Day

Director of D3 Events LTD

“Catax assessed the potential of our claim and gave us an honest and genuine opinion on the likelihood of success. They only indulged in the necessary and where swift, thorough and professional. I guess the litmus test is whether I would use them again or take on another R&D claim ourselves….Easy choice, I’d give them a call without hesitation”

Nadine Rankin and Darren Pearson

Managing Directors of Exposure 4 Limited

“From a cold call to just a few short weeks later, getting confirmation that our refund was on its way, this has been a great surprise to us all round. It’s surprisingly simple to do – Catax take all the pain out of it – and it’s over really quickly! Definitely worth it for what you get back. We also asked our accountants why they hadn’t raised this with us and they were largely unaware of this tax benefit, and didn’t think they could handle such a claim. So – thank you Catax!”

Angus Dudgeon

General Management Consultant of Terry Tew Sound & Light Limited

“We have had excellent service from the admin team at Catax. They were clear in what they required from us, efficient at processing the information and we achieved a successful outcome. I look forward to the next claims being as successful. Thanks again”

Steve Burton

Managing CEO and Financial Director of Burton Performance Centre Limited

“After our initial contact with Catax, a meeting was arranged in early April. Our year end is 30th April leaving very little time to complete our tax relief claim. They carried out a thorough investigation of our records and processes and took all this information away for further examination. Further information was then requested from key personnel within our company to complete and finalise our claim within this very short timeframe. I was expecting to be jumping hurdles and being placed under pressure to complete deadlines but the whole process was carried out in a very smooth and professional manner. The result was a successful claim and additional revenue for further investment in our business. Thank you Catax!”

Phil Hardy

Managing Director of Securicare International Ltd

The staff were knowledgeable, courteous and very helpful right throughout the process and the savings they helped us achieve have been reinvested to further enhance our service and product offering to our customers. We shall certainly continue to use Catax services in the years to come”

Lynda Allsopp

Director of Derek Anthony Limited

“In a matter of weeks our R&D tax credit claim was submitted to HMRC and shortly thereafter, we received a cash benefit. I would have no hesitation in using the services of Catax again, and would definitely recommend their services. Their level of due diligence enabled me to concentrate on other important business matters whilst they handled the claim and all communication with HMRC”

Paul Carey

Chief Financial Officer of Pastest Limited

“Catax provided an excellent service which resulted in a significant repayment from HMRC with a fairly low level of effort required from myself and our staff”

Vic Sylvester

Corporate Account Manager of Millgate Connect Limited

“We spoke to Catax and did not realise the saving and benefits we could get back from the Inland Revenue. With the help of Daniel Murray, we were able to make a claim for Research & Development for some of our developed processes and were successful and got over £7,000 back. We are very grateful for all of RD Tax help in this matter”

Venkata Ganesan

Managing Director of Inca Infotech Ltd

“Catax fully understands effort expended by SME companies in the R&D sphere and has been a great help in getting the claims sorted in a timely manner”

Clive Hornsby

Company Director of Hub Ware Ltd

“A simple and quick 3 step process to discover if we had a legitimate claim, which accountants cannot or do not do. The step by step process was easy to follow and only needed the required information to complete each step. This is important as we knew at each stage in the process, the likelihood of progressing the claim and the additional information required for the next step. This is a much better approach than spending time collating all the data for the claim and then discovering afterward that the claim was not eligible because an initial qualification was not met. A great experience and a service I am recommending to other companies”

Kath Parr

Accountant of Imperative Training LTD

“I felt the service we received from Catax was first class and seamless from start to finish. The work visits were friendly and informative and not at all intrusive, they were easy to understand and the staff involved were polite and explained everything clearly and didn’t mind the hundred questions asked by me at times. The speed of the actual claim was about 8 weeks in total and we received the money within a few weeks of getting the letter informing of us of the value. I would definitely recommend Catax to anyone who was considering this service – couldn’t fault it at all, thank you”

Kevin Norton

Director of The Insurance Octopus

“I couldn’t be happier with the final outcome of the work Catax conducted on our behalf. After we had provided an overview of our business, they assisted in investigating each qualifying area and have maximised the R&D allowances we were due. I would have no hesitation in recommending any business to speak with Catax to see how they could help them in this specialised area”

Jeremy Lowes

Managing Director of Crystal Galleries Limited

“Good set off guys, process simple, team at Catax well versed and professional. Seamless, simple and easy step by step process – great people to work with and they keep it simple!!! Win win”

Steve Wallace

Company Director of Maronash Limited

“Catax were great at pulling together the necessary information for my claim and little input was needed by me”
