Our Customers Trust Us

Professional from start to finish.

It's not often I leave online reviews but after our dealings with Skye and Billie, it would be rude not to thank them both for the help with our R & D claim.
We'd highly recommend them and we were very impressed in how quickly they dealt with everything. There was no pressure from the outset and both Bille and Skye are a credit to their company. We'll no doubt be using them again for our next R & D claim.

Process was seamless from start to finish. Billie walked us through the process. We didn’t think we did R&D but we do but we didn’t look at it that way until, we had a chat and talked Billie through our business development and processes and procedures.

Have a conversation with ABA don’t think you will be disappointed. Thanks Billie

I would like to say a BIG thank you to Skye for contacting me and delivering exactly what she promised. Once Skye passed me to Chris he was exactly the same.

This sort of service has become rare. So it is good to see real values still exist.
Both of you were friendly and professional. Your company should be proud of you both.Once again a big Thank You to you both.
I will happily recommend you to my friends and business owners.

The companies representative Billie Harris actually came out to visit us as we are a specialist manufacture. and was very thorough examining all our manufacturing process.

She submitted her report within a week of visiting us and the IR posted a cheque a week after that although Royal Mail promptly lost the cheque for over 3 weeks

Expert advice, top notch service and took the time to understand our business

Kaine helped us with our R&D tax credit claim. He was knowledgeable about the process, very professional at all times and took the time to understand the complexities of our business.

The process throughout was very smooth. Communication was top notch, and we were kept informed at all stages.

The report that Kaine put together to support our claim accurately portrayed the level of innovation in our business, but we could not have articulated nearly as well ourselves.

Thank you Kaine for a superb piece of work on this for us. We will certainly work with Acute, and Kaine again on future projects.

I would highly recommend this company.

Had the pleasure of dealing with Tom in August 2023 and we were so impressed with his knowledge, professionalism and most importantly the relief savings we qualified for.

Thanks again Tom and keep up the great work.

Acute made the whole process from start to finish very easy to navigate.

Having overlooked the initial approach for about 6months I made the mistake of missing out on a whole financial year of claims.

I would certainly recommend them to others (& have since).

Let Acute help you get what you’re due!
