Research & Development Compliance Checks

Research and Development compliance checks aren't anything out of the ordinary. In fact, in recent years HMRC has spent a large time recruiting over 100 more members into their R&D compliance unit to combat the rising misuse of the scheme.

This means that more companies will receive a compliance check from HMRC than before. This isn't to say that your R&D claim is wrong but they might simply need more information about the claim so they are able to process it. HMRC do check a certain percentage of all claims and this number is only going to increase in the coming years. It is very important you take the correspondence from HMRC seriously. These enquiries or compliance checks often have deadlines that you are required to meet. So if you have submitted the claim yourself you should have all the documents and evidence they might require, if not you will need to get this in order and quickly.
