The R&D Company is headed up by Tim Lwin and Khurshid Yousuf, who are supported by a team of specialist tax advisers and accountants

Tim Lwin FCA CTA


Tim has been involved with R&D Tax Relief Claims since it was introduced in 2000. His first claims included reclaiming overpaid corporation tax and obtaining cash back for companies involved in hair follicle regeneration and portable biomass heating systems.

He has since acted for many small companies that develop software solutions for integrated systems, interactive websites and functional apps. Contact Tim to discuss your R&D tax relief claims.

Tim implements a practical approach to R&D claims with a 100% success rate in making and defending claims with HMRC, with working so closely with HMRC he has developed close links with their Technical Lead at HM Revenue & Customs. Tim’s claims range from a £5,000 tax saving right up to a £500,000 tax saving.

He has shared his expertise with workshops and presentations to business network groups and continues to promote the use of R&D tax reliefs for small medium sized companies aiming to improve internal systems or improve existing products.

Khurshid Yousuf FCA


Khurshid has been involved with R&D Tax Relief Claims since 2005. She has a long standing working relationship with many clients involved in Research and Development, spanning over many years in some cases.

Her very first claim included reclaiming overpaid corporation tax and obtaining cash back for a company involved in developing a hardware solution which introduces security and control measures to a packaging process for the manufacturing industry.

She has since been involved in various R&D tax relief claims for companies in various sectors, and has a particular specialism in the dairy/agricultural sector. One client’s company is involved in developing specialist dairy products. They are involved in developing milk, cheese and yogurt from goats’ milk, a sought after alternative to cow’s milk for children and adults who suffer from allergies or cow’s milk intolerance. They have also been involved in developing the very popular lactose free milk drinks for the ‘free from’ customer.

Khurshid has had 100% success to date in making the R&D claims. The claims have resulted in tax savings for clients ranging from £4,000 to £50,000 and she has developed a very good working relationship with the R&D Technical Team at HM Revenue & Customs.

Khurshid also shares her expertise of the R&D industry at business networking where she endeavours to promote the use of R&D tax reliefs for small, medium sized and large companies as it seems to be a hugely under-claimed relief.

“Howard Worth have helped us understand the tax benefits of R&D claims and worked with us to prepare and submit robust claims to HMRC. Their advice and expertise has enabled us to maximise the tax benefits of our current R&D projects and also identify new areas of R&D spend that will qualify for this relief. I would recommend the Howard Worth team for their help, guidance and expertise in this area.”

Technology Company

“R&D was something I knew little about and I thought it was something big global companies took part in. After a brief conversation with Tim Lwin we quickly realised we had a product that would qualify. Again I thought this would be a long drawn out process that would take many months, even years. Within 8 weeks our claim has gone through and we are expecting a substantial amount of money back from HMRC. I would recommend any person or company that manufactures anything to have a 1-2-1 with Tim and see what you may be entitled to.”
