About Us

Quantum R&D Tax is a Worcestershire based R&D Tax consultancy operating across the UK. We run a small efficient team which means your main contact will be directly with Mike and Kate, so you know exactly who will be dealing with your claim and who to contact if you have any queries.

We are one of very few R&D tax organisations regulated by the ACCA, (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants).

We have a 100% success rate which means you're in safe hands.

Our 100% success rate is down to our in-depth knowledge and detailed approach to the technical reporting and financial analysis we provide to HMRC as part of your claim. We don’t leave anything to chance – we provide HMRC with absolutely everything they require to be able to process your claim effectively and maximise your R&D tax credit. We will also defend your R&D tax claim with HMRC at no extra cost should HMRC ever open an investigation in to your claim.
