We help you innovate faster for the benefit of us all

Innovation creates amazing benefits for society as a whole, so you deserve a consultancy that shares your foresight and passion for exploring new possibilities.

A new standard

When working for one of the UK’s largest R&D tax relief consultancies we saw first-hand that there were flaws in the industry-standard “year-end” approach to claims. It rewards the “business as usual” activities of less dynamic companies, instead of the brave.

We therefore left to set up a consultancy that would change that. We work with you as you begin new projects, not just after, to maximise what you can claim, innovate faster and create more impact. We don’t stop at tax relief, either, but look at the whole innovation support landscape for you.

Luke Sampson Managing Director Invo Capital

Luke Sampson
Managing Director

I have worked as a specialist in innovation tax reliefs since 2014, with a focus on R&D tax relief and the Patent Box. I immediately knew this was the industry for me. 

I believe that business can do amazing things and make a difference. When the economy prospers, society flourishes – and every business plays a part. Through innovation, we cultivate a better future for the next generation. That is the power of business.

I’ve gained invaluable experience and first-hand insights through scaling up a high-growth tax consultancy at senior-level and successfully growing my own innovative repairs business.  

I am excited to introduce a new and unique service with Invo Capital. We want to play our part in helping the UK economy prosper through innovation.

Robert Allan Technical Director Invo Capital

Robert Allan
Technical Director

The past six years working within this sector has been a non-stop learning curve that’s been challenging yet rewarding.

I’ve gained invaluable experience by listening, learning, collaborating, and debating with valued colleagues, advisors, clients and HMRC’s R&D Consultative Committee (RDCC). I was also responsible for developing the R&D technical service for a high-growth tax consultancy from scratch.

My experience means that I can confidently simplify technical matters and influence board-level change to help companies grow and achieve their goals by working within the innovation relief limits. On the rare occasions it’s required, I successfully deal with enquires from HMRC with integrity and respect.

Neenam Wilcock
Operations Director

I always strive to do the best at everything I do, both professionally and personally. After three years in finance, I switched to the innovation funding space and in five years I rapidly progressed through roles to become Technical Operations Manager.

I believe in building strong relationships with our clients and pride myself on delivering the best results through strategic implementation and company collaboration.

The team and clients call me the driving force within Invo as I’m always seeking to cultivate a new culture of innovation – both for clients and here at Invo.

I’m proud to be a part of the grand ambition for Britain to become “the world’s most innovative economy”.
