Reducing Software Development Costs: Our Dynamic Partnership with Seeder Heights for R&D

In a world where technology evolves at a breakneck pace, innovation has become the lifeblood of successful businesses. Utilising bespoke technology can help your company to have a competitive advantage and add value as an asset if the company is ever sold.  Nevertheless, developing software does have a cost.  At Square Balloon, we consistently see how beneficial bespoke software can be for a company’s growth, and it’s our belief that cost should not be prohibitive. 

For this reason, we are delighted to announce a partnership with Seeder Heights, an experienced Research and Development (R&D) tax consultancy. This alliance will enable us to provide our clients with an even more comprehensive suite of services, as we guide them towards optimising their R&D claims and reaping significant financial benefits.

The government have, however, started to clamp down on R&D claims since the UK left Europe.  For that reason, now more than ever, it is vital that you use an experienced R&D company to take care of your claim. 

In this blog post, we will delve into the myriad advantages our clients will enjoy by leveraging Seeder Heights' expertise and how this collaboration will help reduce their software development expenditure.

The benefit of R&D Claims:

Research and Development plays a pivotal role in driving innovation and assisting businesses with efficiencies and growth creating a competitive edge.  However, the costs associated with R&D can be substantial, making it challenging for companies, and giving larger companies the advantage.  To encourage and support innovation, governments worldwide, including the UK, have introduced R&D tax relief schemes. These schemes offer tax breaks and credits to companies that invest in qualifying R&D activities.

As we cater to clients involved in software development and mobile application projects, we have observed the significant impact R&D claims can have on their financial landscapes. By maximising their R&D claims, businesses can not only reduce their tax liability but also free up capital that can be reinvested in further research, development, and business growth. With the partnership with Seeder Heights, we can now offer our clients a specialised R&D service that complements our existing offerings, ensuring they seize every opportunity to innovate while optimising their financial strategies.

A Shared Vision of Excellence:

At Square Balloon, we have always believed in providing value-driven solutions to our clients. We do not simply deliver projects; we forge long-lasting relationships with our clients, understanding their unique needs and business objectives. Seeder Heights shares our vision of excellence, and this alignment of values has been a crucial factor in establishing this partnership.

Seeder Heights is a dedicated and quality-driven tax consultancy with an unwavering commitment to helping businesses unlock their growth potential through R&D tax reliefs. With over 18 years of experience in tax and accountancy, Seeder Heights boasts an impressive track record in successfully assisting companies with their R&D claims. Their team of experts has a deep understanding of HMRC's R&D tax reform and ensures that businesses remain compliant with all relevant legislation while capitalising on available tax relief opportunities.

Moreover, Seeder Heights operates on a no-win, no-fee basis, which means our clients have nothing to lose and everything to gain by collaborating with them.

The assurance of professional guidance, coupled with the potential for substantial tax savings, makes this partnership a game-changer for our clients.

Benefits of the Partnership:

The partnership with Seeder Heights brings a host of benefits that enhance our service offerings and bolster our clients' success:

  1. Expert R&D Guidance: Seeder Heights' seasoned team of tax professionals will guide our clients through the complexities of R&D tax claims, ensuring that their projects qualify for the maximum available tax relief. By harnessing Seeder Heights' expertise, our clients can be confident that they are not leaving any potential tax savings on the table.
  2. Cost Efficiency: As our clients take advantage of their R&D allowance, they can offset a portion of their software development costs through the tax relief gained. This makes our software development services more accessible and financially attractive for businesses of all sizes.
  3. Strategic Growth: R&D tax relief provides businesses with the financial freedom to reinvest in future projects and expand their research and development initiatives. This strategic reinvestment fuels innovation and strengthens our clients' position in their respective industries.
  4. Peace of Mind: With Seeder Heights' expertise, our clients can be assured that their R&D claims are well-prepared, compliant, and optimised for the best possible outcome. This peace of mind allows them to focus on what they do best: driving their businesses forward.
  5. A Partnership of Trust: The collaborative synergy between Square Balloon and Seeder Heights fosters a relationship built on trust and accountability. As our clients' trusted advisors, we strive to deliver the highest level of service, ensuring that they are well-informed about the benefits of R&D claims and how they can best leverage this tax relief.
  6. Protect your future: software development gives you a competitive advantage. Stagnation in any industry will inevitably lead to the front runners pulling away, but software development allows you to become a front runner and leave others in your trail.  Your software is an asset both to your team, but also in the financial sense.  If you have an exit strategy in the future, software adds to the value of your company.


In today's dynamic business landscape, fostering innovation and maximising financial efficiency are paramount to sustained success. Our partnership with Seeder Heights represents a further commitment to our mission to empower our clients with comprehensive, value-driven solutions. By combining our cutting-edge marketing, website, and software development services with Seeder Heights' expertise in R&D tax relief, we are creating a powerful platform for businesses to thrive.

With the government clamp down, it was important to us that we choose a reliable and experienced R&D provider so our client’s have the best advice so we can maximise their safety with any claim.

We look forward to a mutually rewarding collaboration with Seeder Heights, and most importantly, to serving our clients with unwavering commitment and dedication. Together, we will continue to fuel innovation, unlock growth opportunities, and drive the success of businesses across industries.
