Our recommended partners

Working with a range of business clients across the North East, Assent Accountants have partnered with a small selection of companies we would recommend for their professional services.


Capital Allowances, Research & Development and the Patent Box tax relief specialists.

Catax are experts in specialist areas of tax relief, including Capital Allowances, Research & Development (R&D) and the Patent Box. With over 10 years experience, we have identified over £191m in tax benefit for our clients to date. Our average client benefit is £47k for Capital Allowances and £49k for R&D and the Patent Box!

We break down the claims process for you so all our clients need to do is provide us with some details and we’ll take care of the rest. There are no complicated forms to fill out, no legal language to unpick and no tax law to get your head around.

We are trusted partners with many of the UK’s top accountants, solicitors, the Law Society, ICAEW, IFA and CIMA amongst other industry bodies. So far we’ve helped thousands of clients claim their money back from HMRC.
