Our mission is to build a community of accountants and R&D consultants who are committed to standards and compliance, and the knowledge, training and ethics that underpin those.
By providing the specialist training, support and resources our members need, we’re helping them to defend their clients and grow their services in a sustainable way.
Our vision is for our members to win a greater stake in the R&D market by virtue of their knowledge, competence, and integrity.
We want to see a market in which a desire to do things properly isn’t a competitive disadvantage – it’s a compelling selling point that wins you business, safeguards your clients and protects the longevity of your R&D service.
As our membership grows, so too will our schedule of live Q&A webinars, forum discussions and customer events. We’re constantly looking for opportunities to connect our members for mutual benefit.
We already have hours of video-based courses, and are constantly adding more. Our training plan covers not only the R&D scheme, but Eligibility Guides that explain what R&D looks like in a range of industry sectors.
We already canvas members to represent their views to HMRC. We’d like to go beyond this and work with HMRC towards positive change in the scheme, so that good practice is rewarded and poor providers aren’t.
As we grow, we’ll invest in additional technical experts to help us build training, run webinars and run our R&D Helpline and Claim Support services. We’ll select the best people, so you get the best support possible.

Our founder, Richard, has co-founded two R&D companies before. His focus on helping his clients led to a deeper understanding of their needs, and new forms of support.
Behind the scenes our team are working hard on all the free content you’ll find on this site and in your emails, and on all the new training courses and support for our members.
