Media City tax specialist expands to Scotland following “phenomenal growth”

An R&D tax specialist with offices at Media City in Salford has expanded to Scotland and strengthened its team with three new hires as it experiences significant growth.

Counting King has supported over 150 businesses with R&D tax claims over the last year and is looking to reach even more businesses with innovation funding support and advice by establishing a permanent presence in Scotland.

The team has grown rapidly to 15 people over the past year and there are plans to recruit for an additional four roles in the next few months.

It supports organisations to access grants, tax relief incentives and investment to help scale and grow innovative companies in the UK that are looking to disrupt their industry with commercially successful technology products or services.

Counting King already works with businesses across a range of sectors, including brewing, oil, gas, software development, engineering, construction and manufacturing.

As part of this, it is working with trusted referral partners such as Edinburgh based Chase Innovate, a specialist intermediary that supports UK businesses with innovation and energy solutions.

Gary Hilton, co-founder and group director, said: “Counting King has experienced phenomenal growth in 2022, having just surpassed the 100 mark of successful new client wins this year. A major part of this is the rollout of additional services, including searching for grants, capital allowances and of course, R&D tax credits.

“Scotland is bursting with innovation, and it is purely down to its reputation of being a world leader in several sectors that has led us to expand and see which clients we could assist.

“We have brought on some fantastic consultants based in Scotland who are extremely knowledgeable, and in turn, have secured some key strategic partners to further our goal of becoming the UK’s number one funding provider through grants, tax incentives and investment.”
