  • Liaison with our technical tax staff on the preparation of tax documents comprising these R&D claims for submission of claims to HMRC
  • First point of contact with client
  • Supporting R&D Tax Relief claims in the event of HMRC R&D enquiries
  • Continuously developing own knowledge and skills and to keep technical knowledge up to date
