Founder, Your Acting CFO
Olga founded Your Acting CFO in 2015 having identified a need from innovative companies for 'All Things Finance' and laser focus guidance on R&D tax relief as these companies either were not aware of this tax relief, or were not claiming for all that they were entitled.
Prior to that, Olga worked in several senior roles within Finance for eBay and Paypal Inc. She mentored at PayPal's accelerator program and immersed in the start-up community in London, where her passion to enable innovative businesses grow inspired her to become Your Acting CFO.
The Knowledge on R&D
We are spreading the word about Research & Development tax relief and sharing our specialised knowledge.
R&D tax credits can be a major source of finance for innovative businesses in the UK.
We enable innovative businesses fund their growth and continue innovating.
What is R&D Tax Relief
The R&D Tax Relief scheme was put in place by the UK Government in 2000, aiming to encourage companies to spend more on R&D as it is advantageous to the UK economy.
SMEs both profitable and loss-making can get back up to 33% of the amount they have spent on qualifying R&D. Large companies can get up to 12% of their R&D refunded.
It can be claimed as a tax credit and the HMRC will make the payment after they receive your return. Or it can simply be claimed as a relief which will reduce your company's profit chargeable to Corporation Tax for the relevant accounting period.
