We know from our research that a lot of practices would like to offer R&D tax credit claims to their clients as an additional service, but they either lack the necessary expertise or they find the task of gathering relevant information and writing the report too time-consuming. Some practices have outsourced the work thereby missing out on potential fees. WhisperClaims is an ideal solution to this challenge.
Here’s how it works
Screen your client
To avoid wasting your clients’ time and additional cost, the system allows you to screen out ineligible entities before you even start them down the R&D claims process.
Once that’s been done, simply define the accounting period and decide whether to invite your client to work collaboratively with you on the claim.
Complete the online questions
The questions change dynamically depending on the information you provide. Clients don’t have to answer unnecessary questions and the system only goes into more detail when it’s needed.
Questions are multiple choice or use drop-down menus or sliders. Because there’s almost no free text entry, the questions are easier for you or your client to complete – meaning that an R&D tax claim can be completed in less than an hour.
Pay for and download the report
For subscribing customers, once the system has gathered everything it needs, it shows you the client’s approximate expenditure. This allows you to gauge the value of the opportunity – if it’s too small, there’s no obligation to proceed.
Once you’ve checked your client’s answers, simply pay a low, fixed fee for instant access to the report. If you want to add value by tailoring it further, you can choose an editable version and add your own text and images.
Review the report
The report’s structure is based on 15 years’ experience of working in R&D tax relief consultancy. It’s designed to give your client – and HMRC – comfort that all the right questions have been asked.
The content is based on the information provided by both you and the client. If you want to add more content – such as diagrams, photos or further detail – you can download an editable version of the report.
Submit the claim to HMRC
You now have a report and a cost summary, which provides a clear, concise summary of the client’s claim.
The final step is to use your Corporation Tax software to complete the CT600 using the figures from the cost summary and to submit this to HMRC.
WhisperClaims can be white labelled, giving you the opportunity to continue to build your brand by presenting the software as part of your company.
