24/02/2015 Manor Royal R & D Tax Credit Seminar

Are you getting your share of R & D Tax relief? Estimates show £1billion of R & D tax relief goes unclaimed every year!

MRBD in conjunction with the Procurement Hub are delighted to be working with Jumpstart UK to provide an informative, value-added workshop on this topic at the Premier Inn, Fleming Way, RH10 9DF from 9am to 11am.

R and D Tax Credits

This Government scheme aims to encourage exciting new products and services. Why? Because by helping to reduce some of the financial risk for technology companies, the Government hopes they will find new and innovative techniques to increase UK global competitiveness.

Who is eligible?

The Government's R&D tax credits scheme isn't just for companies with R&D departments and men in white coats.
Your company is likely to be eligible if it is developing a product or service through technological advancement, using qualified staff and appropriate project controls, and where doubt about the project's success exists.

Around 8,700 SMEs and 1,900 Large Companies are already claiming more than £1.1bn each year in R&D tax relief from HMRC, but many more thousands aren't. Is your company one of them?

About Jumpstart

Jumpstart is the leading R&D tax relief specialist in the UK, providing a unique blend of technological and business consultancy services to companies with turnover from £1m to £2bn, across the full range of commerce and industry.
Jumpstart's bespoke industry experts get the best results and our scientifically minded analysts identify eligible activity and then translate this information into meaningful reports. Our accountants then utilise its tax benefit to complement your business, by ensuring eligibility legislation is understood.

We are proud to be different - our approach has allowed us to revisit previous unsuccessful applications and make strong, successful claims.

Why Jumpstart?

On average, Jumpstart claims 3.9 times more for SMEs and 11.8 times more for large Companies than a purely financially based claim would receive.


11-12-2014: Understanding procurement workshop

The Buy Manor Royal initiative, which is being delivered in partnership with the BE Group, is hosting an understanding procurement workshop on Thursday 11 December.

It will be delivered by a procurement expert with decades of experience as the head of procurement for a North London council and is designed for those either new to procurement or with limited exposure to the subject.

The workshop will examine the fundamentals of best practice procurement in a jargon-free way and clearly demonstrate the techniques that can be quickly put into practice back in the workplace.

Designed and developed for those either new to procurement or with limited exposure to the subject.

By the end of the course participants will able to be confident in their approach to the procurement process and good buying practice, identify opportunities for saving money and communicate effectively with those both inside and outside of the organisation.

They will also be able to operate competently in all primary aspects of the role such as: quality, quantity, delivery, sourcing, controlling suppliers and price.
