Aprio Partners with London-based Moore Kingston Smith to Serve Clients in United Kingdom with Research & Development Tax Credit Services

Joint venture expands Aprio’s R&D tax credit capabilities to U.K.

Atlanta – August 11, 2020 – Aprio LLP, a nationally-recognized top 50 CPA-led business advisory firm, and London-based accounting firm Moore Kingston Smith announced today their partnership in a Research & Development (R&D) Tax Services practice to meet the needs of growing businesses in the United Kingdom.

Aprio’s R&D Tax Credit Services group, founded in 2008, helps companies across all business sectors that are innovating, designing, developing or improving products, processes, formulas or software to leverage the R&D credit to increase profitability and finance future growth.

“We’re thrilled to be able to provide R&D tax credit services to businesses in the U.K. in partnership with Moore Kingston Smith,” said Carli Huband, Partner-in-Charge of Aprio’s R&D Tax Credit Services group. “In this COVID-19 economy, the R&D credit can provide businesses a valuable source of cash flow. In the U.K., for example, the credit is refundable, meaning clients can get cash back rather than apply the credit to their tax responsibility, which in these uncertain economic times can provide a significant benefit to businesses.”

“We are delighted to build on the strong working relationship we share with Aprio and offer this additional service to our clients,” says Graham Tyler, Partner, Moore Kingston Smith. “Aprio is a leader in R&D Tax Credit Services and together we will assist U.K. businesses in taking full advantage of this lucrative credit.”
