Research & Development tax incentives

Prashant can provide businesses with advice on the availability of R&D tax reliefs and has carried out a number of successful claims for R&D tax credits. He has made claims for a range of businesses; especially those involved in new technology, health products and automotive innovation. Prashant can review your company’s recent activities and can advise on current and future projects that may qualify for R&D tax credits and undertake claims on your behalf.

Venture Capital Schemes

(SEIS, EIS and VCT schemes)

Businesses often require HMRC’s approval that one or more of the Venture Capital Schemes apply in order for them to raise qualifying investments. Prashant is able to advise companies of their eligibility in qualifying for these schemes and can deal with cases where HMRC is being difficult in providing their advance assurance. Potential investors will always want to see HMRC’s approval before investing their money. Prashant’s initial support is crucial to help pave the way for such businesses. His experience spans across a variety of industries such as hospitality, media & digital production agencies, sports, technology, and fintech.

Corporate reorganisation and restructuring

Prashant works alongside clients looking to make changes to their corporate structure. He is able to give advice on the full spectrum of taxes involved in such projects and can assist clients to arrive at an optimal tax position whilst keeping to the project’s overall commercial objective. Such projects may arise when there is a division in the business, a company acquisition/merger, a succession plan, or as a result of the business’ organic growth.

Employee Incentives

For clients looking to incentivise their employees through share awards and share options, Prashant is able to provide tax advice to both the employer and the employee on such incentives. By setting up incentive schemes with clients, Prashant has built strong relationships with lawyers who are able to assist with the relevant legal documentation.
