Publication Review

“Where this book is very good is that it is comprehensive. Within my own client base it has prompted me to consider whether I might have overlooked claims …” (AccountingWeb review – January 2015)

“I’d thoroughly recommend it as a guide for any practitioner who wants to advise clients on a new project or check whether they have a hitherto-unsuspected potential claim for R&D tax relief.” (TAXline – March 2015)

“If you need a clearer picture of the current position on tax relief for R & D, you need this book.” (Phillip Taylor MBE, Reviews editor, The Barrister - April 2015)
