Understanding you

Whether you are a start-up business or an established multinational company, our Innovation and Technology team has relevant experience in addressing the challenges and opportunities that await you in this sector.

We have invested years in nurturing a network of helpful contacts in the innovation ecostructure, so that we are able to provide rounded, strategic advice to IP-rich businesses.

How can we help you?

In addition to the services and skills needed by all businesses, you have access to specialist skills and experience particularly relevant to Innovation and Technology businesses.  Our Innovation and Technology services include:


Helping you achieve your goals

Our Innovation and Technology specialists take a personal and proactive approach in helping you to navigate through the complexities of this dynamic sector and to maximise your opportunities.

Unlike many advisory firms which focus on a particular practice area, our Innovation and Technology team integrates specialist accounting, tax and corporate finance professionals, as well as independent experts in grants and intellectual property commercialisation.

Our aim is to ensure that all relevant aspects are considered in the development and implementation of your business strategy.

In the year to 30 April 2019, we helped companies to claim tax savings of over £7 million.

Making a difference

We are proud to contribute to such a vibrant and varied innovation and technology sector and we are keen to support the development of future innovation and technology businesses.

We regularly sponsor innovation awards, such as the Cotswold Life ‘Engineering, Manufacturing and Innovation’ Award for Best Research and Development Project.  We are committed to helping companies reap the rewards of their new ideas and inventions.


What our clients say

  • " "

    David Clift and his colleagues at the Hazlewoods Innovation team have just completed our fifth R&D claim. They are specialists in the field of R&D taxation, and we have enjoyed their thorough and proactive approach to completing our claim reports.

    ABC Connection Ltd
  • " "

    The final claim document produced by the team…far surpassed anything we could have hoped to prepare on our own. The resulting tax credit was processed very promptly by HMRC and was a very pleasing conclusion to a relatively painless exercise which we intend to repeat.

    Mr Paul Whatley
  • " "

    Hazlewoods quickly and easily established the basis and the potential amount of the credit and let us know clearly what information was required, which encouraged us to proceed. With their guidance, we obtained a substantial refund. We are delighted with the service from Hazlewoods.

    Mr Steve Tootill
  • " "

    If only other professionals were as proactive, thoroughly efficient and nice to deal with, business would be a lot easier.

    Mr Peter Ritchie
  • " "

    We have been delighted with the service we have received from Hazlewoods during our past two R&D claims ... It is always reassuring to work with a company you have total faith in.
