Why Choose Us

Industry Specialists

Abel & Mercer offers a specialist R&D consultancy service that is totally independent its is all we do. We helped SME and Corporations with successfully claiming R&D tax credits that generate tens of thousands of pounds for our clients. We are passionate about all aspects of the R&D scheme & engage with HMRC to both gain knowledge of and contribute to any points of debate around the R&D schemes


Tax is a serious matter and we take any tax metter seriously. The R&D scheme is a privilege to work with. The companies that benefit from its existence do so at the discretion of the government. With that privilege comes a responsibility to claim within the rules. Ethical standards and compliance processes are therefore crucial to any form of R&D consultancy. Changes were made to the scheme in 2018 due to fraud and we regard any sort of unethical behaviour as a threat to the R&D scheme we so passionately work with.

Fair Fees

We understand every company is different, and hence every R&D claim is different. That is why we provide full-service R&D service on a no win no fee basis. This includes working with HMRC on any enquiries they may have regarding a tax Credit claim. We do this while being fair with the fees we charge our clients. Our charges are the most competitive around for a full service. Our service adds insight and exceptional value to the claim process.

Giving Back

We believe in more than just our own bottom line. We have facilitated the donation of money and items to our charity partners helping those organisations to focus their resources on frontline services. We support organisations that help in supporting the most vulnerable in our society, help the disadvantaged to help themselves, improve the environment within which we live and support education projects in local schools.
