We’re ForrestBrown. We’re a firm of chartered tax advisers. We specialise in research and development tax credits. But we don’t lead with number-crunching – we lead with innovation, with energy and with total trust in each other. We may be relatively small right now. But we’re growing fast. We’re already one of the UK’s largest tax teams focused just on R&D – and we’ve won awards for our work. We work closely with our clients. So closely that we don’t just see the impact of our work, we feel it, too. We work across all sectors. In industries like Aviation, Food & Beverage, Marketing, Property, IT, Travel, Retail, Construction Household goods and Oil & Gas – to name just a few. And we’re pretty good at what we do. Why? Because we trust each other to deliver. We’re given space, time and support so we have the opportunity to shine – both as a business, and as individuals. We know suits don’t equal outstanding work. That’s why we don’t wear suits at all. Instead, we build strong relationships. We give our time. We deliver outstanding results. And yes, we work hard. But we enjoy ourselves, too. And that’s just how we like it. Being a ForrestBrown-er is more than a job. It’s being dedicated. It’s being generous. It’s helping clients push boundaries and move their R&D forward. It’s a purpose we all share, and a purpose you can be proud to be part of. SHARE PURPOSE, FEEL PROUD.

Whowe are

We’re ForrestBrown, the UK’s leading research and development (R&D) tax consultancy. Our mission is to help innovative businesses make the most of R&D tax relief – but that doesn’t mean we fit the mould of the average tax firm. We’re creative, driven and fiercely passionate about what we do. We thrive on delivering amazing results for our clients, but believe it’s not the be-all-and-end-all about our jobs. That’s why there’s more to ForrestBrown than what’s in your job description, from development opportunities to yoga classes and team socials. Our vibrant headquarters is based in Bristol, and you’ll also find us in London and Scotland too - so come and say hello!

Whatwe do

We build brilliant relationships with clients in exciting industries like aviation, technology, fashion and food. Our work helps clients use R&D tax relief strategically, uncovering the funds they need to move forward. That’s cash to put towards hiring new talent or creating something remarkable.

We also do a lot behind the scenes. Our marketing professionals play a pivotal role in demonstrating the value of having ForrestBrown as a strategic partner. Our sector specialists – in-house experts with years of experience in diverse industries – help clients uncover their technical projects and communicate them to HMRC. Our quality assurance experts uphold our robust claim methodology, and our office management team keeps everything running smoothly. Whichever team you’re part of, you’ll play a crucial role in adding value to our clients.

We’ve grown from a handful of tax experts to a talented team of 120 – and we’re just getting started.

The first thing people notice about ForrestBrown is our culture. We’re proud to have created a culture around what we love, not what we think a tax firm should look like.

We’re big believers in collaboration and know people work best when they’re supported, not siloed. So while we have different skill sets, we all work together towards the same purpose: to deliver outstanding results for our clients.

And we have fun along the way too. Whether we’re catching up over a beer at our in-house bar or enjoying our weekly team lunches, it’s an environment we thrive in.
