ForrestBrown has opened a new office in Glasgow, Scotland, which brings to life ForrestBrown’s mission to help all UK innovative businesses grow using R&D tax relief.

The business is privileged to see first-hand the positive impact that R&D tax credits can have on a business and working closely with its clients ForrestBrown can help them to uncover extra funding. That’s cash to put towards the next big project, or the final push in creating something remarkable.

ForrestBrown’s work has created the equivalent of more than 10,000 technical jobs in the UK, over £500m for its clients – a vital pathway for future talent in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics careers.

In recent years, the market for R&D tax relief advice has become increasingly competitive and the last year has also seen a marked change in HMRC’s approach with a greater focus on compliance than ever before. ForrestBrown plans to continue to disrupt the market by driving forward its professional standards agenda to support businesses, and support clients through a further tightening in HMRC’s approach.

The business boasts many Scottish clients and is looking forward to strengthening its ties in the region. The new office demonstrates the company’s commitment to a region that is at the forefront of the engineering, renewables, and software sectors.

The Scottish office will be led by R&D tax specialist Stephen Leishman, who joins ForrestBrown as Lead Consultant, Scotland. Stephen and his team will be focused on providing dedicated local support to ensure that Scottish businesses are maximising their reward for their investment in innovation..
