    It was Leyton’s approach that made us aware of the research grant instrument in the first place and put us in touch with an excellent team of funding specialists. The collaboration works very well. We are guided through the application process by the expertise of the Leyton colleagues and have been able to benefit from the targeted application preparation and support of the Leyton staff with three approvals by the BSFZ to date. We are confident that the subsequent tax assessment notices will also be positive and that we will receive positive decisions on several more projects together in the future.

    How we help.

    Many companies in the sector are not aware that they carry out eligible R&D activities on a day-to-day basis within the meaning of the research allowance, for which they can claim a lucrative tax credit. The tax credit is offset against a company’s income tax liability and allows reinvestment in further R&D, for example.

    Our Leyton experts assist companies in applying for the research credit. Our dedicated team consists of experienced engineers and scientists who provide our customers with maximum economic benefits as well as making a significant contribution to optimizing operating costs.
