Iain brings with him over 10 years specialist experience in helping businesses successfully claim R&D tax credits.
Joining Buzzacott from KPMG, Iain was previously responsible for building and growing the Innovations Relief and Incentives team covering the southern region. Small and multinational businesses have benefited from his expertise in not only claiming R&D tax credits, but also in understanding the complex R&D tax credit scheme and its scope within the realms of their specific business operations. Iain also oversaw innovation incentives such as patent box and creative sector reliefs and has previously worked within the aerospace and media sectors.
Simon Wax, who heads up the Technology & Media specialism at Buzzacott said; "Due to the increasing complexity of R&D tax services, Iain's appointment is crucial to the development of our specialist service in this area, ensuring our clients are both benefiting from the relief and maximising their claims."
His extensive experience of negotiating complex claims with HMRC and due diligence in reviewing R&D claims will help Buzzacott’s clients better understand how to overcome the challenges of claiming successful R&D credits and of course, best practice.
Cliff Cooper, Head of Buzzacott’s Corporate and Business Services team said; “Given the growing importance of the R&D tax credit scheme to our client base, Iain will be able to help them submit successful R&D claims and oversee processes to support them with their future growth through to the potential sale of their business.”
Iain said of his appointment; “I am very excited to be joining Buzzacott at a time when companies across the firm’s client base are increasingly interested in R&D claims and innovation incentives. I look forward to making Buzzacott the go-to firm to support clients with preparing future-proof R&D and innovation incentive claims that are an integral part of their growth and development plans.”
