Recruitment update: New R&D specialist joins the team

At Innovation 4 Business, we believe that strong employees are essential to the success of the business.

As part of our latest recruitment drive, we’ve welcomed a new Research and Development Relief (R&D) specialist to our team, making this our fifth new hire in five months.


Joining from East Midlands accountancy practise Azets, Taylor Rodwell MAAT ATT has joined the Innovation 4 Business R&D team and brings with him a wealth of tax experience, including in capital allowances, land remediation relief and stamp duty tax relief.  Prior to working at Azets, and having previously spent 8 years working in tax, Taylor was a Quantity Surveyor.

An exciting addition to the team, Taylor’s main area of expertise is in R&D – providing us with a great opportunity for expansion. The R&D area has seen great growth since businesses are increasingly seeking to recover relief they are entitled to as part of their R&D work.

An increased R&D focus

In his new role, one of Taylor’s key aims at Innovation 4 Business will be to focus on R&D claims in the property and construction sector, primarily advising property developers and specialists.

Construction is one of the most underclaimed sectors when it comes to R&D claims, with the average R&D claim in the construction sector being £70,359 (HMRC R&D tax credits statistics 2020). R&D often leads to an improvement in existing construction techniques to solve site specific or environmental issues or developing new products such as lighter weight, stronger, resilient or easier-to-process building materials.

For the business, this means we will have additional time and resources to help with your R&D claims. We look forward to helping more businesses claim R&D relief using our expert team.
