Houseof is a new, innovative retail lighting company that started its journey as recently as April 2019. And within a year, we have managed to carve out a niche for our little venture! We design and develop bespoke lighting products for residential and commercial properties, all of which are crafted and produced in the UK. We also use an innovative software solution to deliver customisable product features for our e-commerce platform, giving our customers a chance to personalise our lighting products as per their preferences.
Advanced & Bespoke Lighting Solutions
Our passion for design-led homewares and curiosity for doing things uniquely led us to establish the Houseof brand. It was created with the aim of designing and creating highly advanced, yet customisable light fittings that provided unparalleled aesthetics, safety, and efficiency. Having identified the demand for specialised lighting fixtures, we set about producing a unique range of lights that were individually designed to complement the room or space they were placed in. We also conducted extensive research and development to make cost and energy-efficient products, that also delivered functionality and aesthetics. Furthermore, we wanted to give our customers the opportunity to customise the products they bought from us but were unsure about the complex coding and designing involved in the process. Hence, we decided to build a unique e-commerce UX design which challenged the norms and enabled consumers to personalise their favourite lighting products on our website.
It took over 2 years of research and development for us to launch our products and website and cost us a major chunk of our initial investment. We realised that we would need further investment to continually keep adding to our product range and make our customisable e-commerce website tool more effective. That’s where Datafox came into the picture! We were introduced to them by a furniture start-up who had made a successful R & D tax credit claim through Datafox. Their resourceful team was highly knowledgeable, proactive, and transparent throughout the process, which was carried out on a no-win-no-fee basis. Datafox expertly wrote and assessed the whole narrative for our claim before submitting it to HMRC. Thanks to Datafox, we were able to make an R & D claim worth £30K+ for 1 year.
Datafox are specialists in R & D tax credit claims for those within the lighting industry and have helped several businesses and entrepreneurs get R & D tax credit refund for their innovation.
There are no upfront costs with DataFox – in the unlikely event your claim is declined, we do not charge you. You only pay our fee if the claim is successful and when this has been paid by HMRC!
