Construction projects present complex challenges, including unexpected delays, cost-efficiency issues, and materials shortages. At Bonham & Brook, we know that resolving these challenges can lead to substantial R&D opportunities. That’s why we help construction companies identify and claim R&D tax credits through the government’s innovation and reward scheme.

Our co-founder owns a construction company, which gives us the authority and required expertise to evaluate and identify qualifying R&D in the field. Hire us and rest assured that your claim will be in good hands. 

A Quick Preview of Our Claiming Process 

At Bonham & Brook, we follow a comprehensive process to ensure that your projects meet the requirements and criteria set by the IRS for the R&D tax credit. Here’s what we evaluate: 

  • Qualified purpose: Did your project aim to develop or improve a business component such as a product, process, or technique?
  • Uncertainties: Did you encounter challenges that made it uncertain how to achieve your project goals in terms of feasibility, method, or design?
  • Your project is fundamentally technological in nature: Did your project rely on principles of Construction Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Architecture, or other hard sciences to resolve these challenges?
  • Process of Experimentation: Did you follow a systematic approach that involved experimentation and the evaluation of alternative solutions to reach your goals?

It’s worth noting that your project doesn’t have to be successful or fully completed to qualify for the R&D tax credit. 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we encourage you to reach out to us to discuss your eligibility. We’re here to help, even if you’re not sure whether your project qualifies.
