TOP 50+50 FIRM Taylorcocks has partnered with tax relief specialist Jumpstart.
The new alliance will enable the sharing of clients between the two firms and strengthen Taylorcocks’s relationship with its existing clients. The deal is part of Jumpstart’s strategic expansion into the rest of the UK, and helps make possible their internationalisation strategy which is already in progress.
Taylorcocks will introduce Jumpstart as a way of maximising research and development tax relief claims, dealing with both existing and future claims.
Managing director at Taylorcocks, Ian Cocks, said: “HMRC is tightening its enquiry of R&D tax claims. Now more than ever, clients need to have experts at their side to make sure the claims are solid, compliant and bring high returns.”
Brian Williamson, managing director at Jumpstart, also emphasised the importance of client satisfaction: “We share a similar ethos of providing the highest quality solutions to meet the needs of our clients and we are confident that this new, strong and positive partnership will bring benefits across the board.”
