R&D Tax - An Alternative Funding Route


Tim Walsh, Regional Director, RandDTax

Suzanne Heaven, Marketing Director, Gemini Print


TAX !! Wait up, I thought Tax was dry & boring – Well, think again.

Join Tim for a whistle-stop tour of the wonderful world of Research and Development (tax relief).

Come and learn about how reinventing the wheel can reduce the amount of tax you pay, and a possible reason why there are so many new breweries.

Based on insights from RandDTax’s 1,100 clients, Tim will share his experience and field any questions.

You will leave with...

•        A deeper understanding of a complex area of tax

•        Fresh perspectives on what can qualify for this generous tax relief


To achieve their focus on award-winning customer delight, Gemini Print's investment in leading-edge technology and process development has been critical. However, this hunger for innovation and growth is a huge challenge in a manufacturing and creative industry that is labour intensive with very low margins and returns.

How many skilled people do you think are involved with the creation and delivery of your brochures, your direct mail campaigns or your exhibition kit?

What impact can machinery and information systems technology advances have on developing quality standards, production efficiencies, environmental impact improvements and team motivation?

Suzanne will provide some insight into how their programme of research and development has played a role in consistently expanding the ways the Gemini Print team strive to help develop clients business results and ROI.
