Simon Bulteel is the owner of Cooden Tax Consulting which recently celebrated its 5th Birthday and its first £1m claim. As a qualified Accountant, Simon developed his interest in Research and Development Tax Relief in 2004 when a client developed a 60ft shipping container used by the British Army to purify water. He left practice in 2006 and moved to a global Clinical Research Organisation where he designed the methodology for the company to claim, which led to enhanced losses of several £m, deferring corporation tax for years. It also exposed him to R&D Tax Relief in France and the Netherlands. In 2012, after redundancy, he joined a World Championship winning motorsport team in Sussex and helped them to prepare a claim. In September 2013 he left the company and began working full time in Cooden Tax Consulting after a brief stint of moonlighting! Come and pick his Brain!
