About Leyton

Businesses need help to unleash the potential that is latent within them – too often they don’t have the objectivity to spot new opportunities that will help them evolve and grow. Leyton helps them do just that. Founded in France in 1997 and now operating all over the world, we find opportunities in our clients’ processes and ways of working with them that others can’t see, then unlock them to create value efficiently. The Group now employs 2,200 experts across 34 offices in Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Spain, Sweden, the UK and US. In the past year, we are proud to have helped 26,000 businesses globally successfully claim €1.5bn in tax relief to aid their growth, and reinvest in their business.

Leyton was founded in the UK in 2009, we now have close to 300 employees and offices in London, Manchester, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Our expert teams work closely with nearly 5,000 UK businesses each year to maximise the financial benefits they receive from a range of innovation funding schemes including R&D Tax Credits, Patent Box, Energy Tax Relief, Capital Allowances and Land Remediation Tax Relief. We advise clients across a wide range of industry sectors – from agriculture to physiotherapy, construction to yacht building – on all aspects of innovation funding, energy consultancy and capital advisory. In 2020, we helped our UK clients to successfully claim more than £200m in tax credits.

At Leyton, we share the values of team spirit, innovation and sustainable development, and we are genuinely motivated to help companies accelerate their growth and achieve long-lasting performance.
