PEPPA Pig is looking perky thanks to a cash windfall for a specialist branding firm.

Kokomo, which designs and produces children’s toiletry products using a host of favourite characters, which also include Barbie and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, has managed to claim back more than £30,000 in research and development tax credits from the Government.

Kokomo’s claim, arranged by accountants Chantrey Vellacott DFK, includes the design of new bottles using a plastic injection moulding, body scrubs and bath salts.

Bruce Cox, finance director of Kokomo, which is based at Milton Hill, near Didcot, said: “What we do is very innovative and takes a lot of work, so we have definitely benefited from being able to claim these credits.

“It really reduces our corporation tax liability.”

Great news - We pay so much tax out as a nation that it's great to see people being able to claim back when they have been innovative.
