R&D consultancy Counting King saves businesses over £3 million

"We attribute this growth to our wide network of partners, consultants, and commitment to compliance which has always been at the forefront of our business."
Sam Dallow, Co-founder of Counting King

Counting King has experienced significant growth over the last 12 months and helped hundreds of businesses save money in tax benefits. It recently smashed its tax saving record by supporting clients to receive over £500,000 in a single month.


It has expanded its team to eight people over the past six months, including specialist R&D tax analysts and an ex-associate tax director from EY, who has over 20 years of experience.


This year, it also opened new offices on the fifth floor of innovation hub HOST, the Home of Skills & Technology at MediaCityUK, with space for up to 20 people to support its growth ambitions.


It plans to continue expanding its service offering by showcasing and educating businesses on the importance of innovation across the country, helping to guide them through the process of utilising incentives and the funding opportunities that they may be eligible for.


As part of this, Counting King is holding its first networking and exhibition event, Innovation North West on 30 September, which will bring together leading industry experts including AWS DeepRacer, Viscgo and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre.


Established by Gary Hilton and Sam Dallow, Counting King works with UK limited companies to help remove the stress and effort of submitting labour intensive technical reports and detailed financial calculations to HMRC. 


Sam, co-founder and head of R&D analysis, said: “We have experienced immense growth in the past three months, with an additional six new team members joining us across several departments. We attribute this growth to our wide network of partners, consultants, and commitment to compliance which has always been at the forefront of our business.


“As a company, we wanted to create an accessible platform for companies within the sector, to promote innovation in the region and that’s how Innovation North West was born. It’s a fantastic opportunity for businesses and entrepreneurs to network and connect with like-minded people.”


Martin Bremner, MD of Bremner Group, said: “It’s always a pleasure working with Gary, Sam and Sunny from Counting King, they’re very knowledgeable and transparent with their process. The service that they provide is always professional, smooth and compliant.” 


Innovation North West is on 30 September, 6-9pm, at HOST Social in MediaCityUK and you can register for free here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/innovation-north-west-presented-by-counting-king-rd-tax-consultants-tickets-163385712063
