About us

Who we are

Founded in 2017, Kapitalise specialises in securing R&D tax credits for your business innovation. With hundreds of successful claims and nearly £40million saved for clients, our team of innovation funding specialists can help you identify qualifying expenditure and maximise your R&D claim.

We are also proud to sit on the Research & Development Consultative Committee, an HMRC-sponsored forum, which meets twice a year to discuss the operational delivery of the R&D tax relief schemes.

We are knowledge leaders in the field of R&D funding and we are currently coordinating ‘WATSON’ – an EU wide study of the impact of R&D tax incentives.
