LOCAL entrepreneur, Pamela Cunliffe, has launched her own business, RnD Tax Refunds Limited to provide a dedicated service to firms across Warrington and the North, in claiming tax relief from HMRC.
Refunds are available for research and development activity carried out within a business – and many businesses aren’t aware refunds are available to them.
Fresh off the back of being selected as a Finalist at the 2017 Enterprise Vision Awards for her commitment to the Financial Services industry, and having been shortlisted at the Warrington Business Awards last year, Pamela took the initiative to set up her own consultancy following 2 years as Director of the Northern branch of a Midland’s based R&D firm. She has worked extensively in the professional sector across the North West in a variety of roles from archivist to manager, and is now dedicated to supporting SMEs through the R&D tax claim process from The Base in Warrington.
The government backed scheme was designed to reward innovation and provide companies with the opportunity to further develop their products and processes, as well as help businesses exploring new products and niche markets. Shockingly, billions of pounds of R&D tax credits are unclaimed every year by UK businesses, so Pamela is committed to growing awareness across the North and supporting business owners throughout each stage of claiming back tax that is rightfully theirs, starting with the launch of her new website www.rndtaxrefunds.co.uk.
Armed with the ideal business model, RnD Tax Refunds takes businesses through 6 simple steps to claiming back all-important funds they once spent on Research and Development – all on a no win, no fee basis.
The launch of the business has been driven by the desire to eradicate the misconceptions that:
•Small businesses can’t claim
•Only businesses within the manufacturing industry are eligible
•R&D tax can only be claimed if the project was successful
•The process is time consuming and too good to be true
Commenting on her new venture, Pamela said: “There’s nothing more rewarding than helping SMEs to grow, and with the average R&D tax claim being around £48,000 those funds received into the bank account can have such a huge impact in propelling businesses to the next level. With a personal approach being at the forefront of everything I do, I’m excited to start meeting with and raising awareness to SMEs across the region and putting money back in their pockets – watch this space!”
