R&D Tax Credits | Reach the Apogee

We help businesses of all sizes get money for their innovation.

We are Apogee Associates Limited, a company founded by four colleagues and friends who wanted to bring an innovative, client-centric approach to the R&D tax credit sector.

Having worked with two different R&D tax credit specialists (one of which members of our team co-founded), and having reviewed applications from many more, we observed several issues with R&D tax credit consultancies over our years in the industry; nobody could offer clients exceptional service at a reasonable cost that ensured all of their eligible activities and expenditure (and none of the ineligible expenditure) was captured and properly presented.

That was our opportunity; for a company, comprised of R&D tax credit experts with a proven track record, to help clients using a new approach.

  • We don’t use lock in contracts, because we depend on our second-to-none service to retain custom.
  • A small team of experts work on every application, so you know it is being compiled in-house by an experienced R&D tax credit specialist at every stage, and have consistent points of contact.
  • Because of this, we offer clients the best recovery, net of fee (which is fully-contingent on success) in the industry, and have uplifted previously submitted applications from most of the major (and many of the minor) R&D providers.
  • We have an uncompromising focus on quality that has led to a 100%, unqueried success rate across applications we’ve worked on; every report we have compiled has been paid in full.
  • We support businesses of all sizes, because we genuinely want to help eligible companies access the funds they need to succeed. If an R&D application will be worthwhile for you, we will support you.

All of this seemed pretty obvious to us, yet nobody was doing it. That’s why we started Apogee Associates; to help clients Reach the Apogee.

Apogee Associates R&D Tax Credits

The R&D tax credit scheme is run by HMRC to enable companies that have invested in innovation to recover their associated costs. The guidance from HMRC is extensive, but at times can appear vague, making it difficult for individual companies or their accountants to understand the full potential of the scheme. We take the pain out of the application process, making it seamless (and interesting!), whilst ensuring you receive your maximum potential benefit.

Our team have over 10 years’ experience in specialist R&D tax consultancy and provide the technical knowledge to identify and support all types of application. Throughout our time in the industry, we’ve maintained a true 100% success rate, ensuring no application was rejected, or even queried, by HMRC.

Here at Apogee, we practice what we preach; innovation is at the forefront of everything we do and we are constantly exploring new technologies and methods of improving our service to clients, all while operating ethically, responsibly and sustainably.

Don't just take our word for it...

"The team at Apogee have been nothing less than excellent from the very start of our relationship. We have been able to completely trust them with our clients and records and they have always provided a swift service. The value they bring to the R&D tax returns adds benefit every time. Their work is partly a collaboration with us and the two work together smoothly. It’s actually a shame R&D returns are only annual - we’d happily work with them month by month."
"What a breath of fresh air within the R&D tax credits space. I run my own accountancy practice, and Apogee have completed R&D tax credit claims for a number of my clients. They provide a fantastic level of service throughout the whole process. Myself, as well as my clients are kept well informed throughout the whole process, and a lot of time and effort is put in by the whole team to ensure there is a detailed level of understanding for all parties. No stone is left unturned. Having worked alongside Apogee with a number of clients, I would highly recommend these guys. Outstanding service, professional, and a pleasure to deal with."

"As a cybersecurity company that carries out a lot of research work, working with Apogee to reclaim R&D tax credits has been invaluable in sustaining our business and further supporting our customers. Apogee are professional and extremely knowledgeable around R&D tax credits and offered us a very clear path to claim back tax credits which we were entitled to have as a business. I have since recommended their services to several of our partner companies and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them to others in the future."

“I’m very pleased with Apogee’s work and thank you again for making this a clear and easy (and most importantly, successful) process for us. Your professionalism throughout was appreciated.”
"Totally recommend this company for anyone who thinks they could be eligible for R&D Tax Credit. I was surprised how quickly they understood our business and research interests, leading to a successful claim. I don't generally enjoy talking about Tax, but talking to Ben and Nathaniel was a pleasure."
