A first claim worth almost £68,000 has been awarded to a Hertfordshire-based media company. Developing complex, unique software to control the many print and e-titles in the company’s portfolio was the central thrust of the claim. Initially the company contacted randd uk thinking that a different element of its work could qualify – it didn’t, but a few minutes on the phone was enough for randd’s experts to ascertain that the software development work could qualify. A meeting followed, it was clear that the work carried out was R&D-based and the claim was compiled in quick time. The resulting award is this month’s headline news in the company!
