Im slightly shell shocked that a client of mine has completed and R&D claim through a specialist and claimed £65k of R&D expenses over 2 years - tax credit @130%. They have claimed for the directors wages, sub contractor costs, software costs and some consumables. This is a v small Ltd co, Turnover is less than £150k.
I didn't even think they really did R&D. They design websites for clients.... nice slick looking websites but nothing that hasn't been done before (in my opinion). has anyone come across this before? Should they worry about HMRC in the future or do I need to upskill on this stuff so I can spot it?
