A small volume, specialist plastics engineering firm from Bedford received almost £12,500 from their first R&D Tax Credits claim. With a total turnover of just over £0.5m, the family business fabricates just about anything in plastics, but specialises in leading-edge developments in PCB handling, plus health and safety guarding for optical selection devices used in the food industry. No need to reach for the plastic for a while, the claim all went into the business as cash!
