About Cost Care Tax

Est 1995

Cost Care is one of the leading tax specialists in the UK. We’re passionate about maximising the rewards for forward-thinking businesses, regardless of sector.

The world of research and development (R&D) tax credits and capital allowances can be complex and many businesses and accountants lack the time or specialist knowledge to claim back the maximum amounts due. All of our staff time is dedicated only to specialist areas and for this reason we are trusted by accountants and business advisors across the country to provide these services to their clients. Our team of experienced tax specialists have been submitting claims to HMRC for over 20 years and this longstanding relationship with HMRC, together with unrivalled experience, enables us to offer an effortless claims process that will maximise financial rewards.

We’ve claimed back £millions in tax relief for businesses – from start-ups to corporates with £100million+ turnover for both their property and R&D expenditure. We work with companies located across the length and breadth of the UK, helping them access the additional funds they are entitled to. These funds are commonly reinvested in people, machinery and processes to accelerate growth and profitability.

Capital Allowances on Commercial Property

Most businesses will be familiar with claiming capital allowances on plant and machinery. However, many overlook or disregard their properties which are effectively machines providing heating, lighting and security to the business. If you own commercial property, regardless of when you acquired it, there may be valuable unclaimed allowances you are entitled to. In some cases, the allowances can be as much as 50% of the purchase or build cost of the property. With 20 years’ experience in making complex capital allowance claims, you’re in capable hands.

Cost Care Tax's services were recommended by a larger contractor who had dealt with Cost Care Tax for various accounting and tax purposes. Needless to say we were not disappointed and they lived up to their recommendation with a high level of professionalism and attentiveness.
As a smaller contractor we can rarely afford the time nor the internal personnel to carry out the abundance of R&D paperwork involved in tax credits. Cost Care Tax takes that pressure away and carries the burden both with complete care and within a decent time frame.
