Jumpstart and EEF have developed an attractive offering for EEF members ensuring that, whether you are already claiming R&D tax relief or have yet to take advantage of the scheme, you can have the assurance that your company will be able to maximise your return from a claim and that your claim is robust and defensible.


  • For members already claiming R&D tax relief

Jumpstart will undertake a desk review of your previous claims and provide an opinion on the potential for their team of engineers and scientists to enhance the value of your future claims. If appropriate they will also offer to revise previous claims with a view to securing an uplift in benefit value.


  • First time claimers

You can take advantage of Jumpstart’s unique blend of industry-based technical knowledge and understanding of HMRC legislation, proven to deliver more accurate R&D tax credit claims for their clients.


  • Smaller companies

Even if you have limited R&D spend, you can take advantage of Jumpstart’s R&D Training Workshop, which is designed and developed to assist companies in preparing and submitting their own R&D tax relief claim. If appropriate, this can be supported by Jumpstart’s optional ClaimCheck to give you the assurance that your claim documents are compliant with HMRC’s requirements.


All EEF members will benefit from a generous discount on Jumpstart fees.
