The claim process

Lime R&D specialise solely in R&D tax credits – this is all we do. Our aim is to make the claim process as simple and strightforward as possible. We work alongside you every step of the way, tailoring our service to your specific needs. Our bespoke process provides a professional, well-planned and efficient claim generation route.

The claim process



A face-to-face meeting or a telephone conversation where we can discuss the qualifying criteria with you to quickly identify your projects that meet HMRC’s requirements. Planning and data gathering processes will then be discussed, defining roles and responsibilities and agreeing time scales.

Information Gathering

We work closely with you to gather cost and project information needed to produce a strong R&D claim.

R&D Report

A technical report, which meets HMRC’s criteria, will be drafted to support the claim.


Lime Accounting submits the final claim and project report to HMRC, liaising directly with them to progress the claim and make sure you receive your R&D tax relief benefit. We ensure you are kept fully up-to-date as the claim process proceeds.

How much does it cost?

Lime R&D is not your average tax consultancy – we pride ourselves on providing a refreshing approach to R&D tax credits.  Our goal is to simplify the claim process and make R&D tax credit claims more accessible.

Claims are prepared risk free – if you do not receive a benefit then we won’t charge you anything!

There are no minimum term contracts and you won’t find any upfront or hidden fees.

Your claim will always be prepared by a chartered tax specialist.

Our contingent fee is one of the lowest on the market and is only payable once HMRC has processed your claim.

You really have nothing to lose – contact us today for a free no obligation consultation.
