Funding

Raising funding is all about being prepared. You’d perhaps question someone who decided to run a marathon without any preparation? Our role is to prepare you for funding and what may surprise you is that it’s rarely about the numbers.
 
To start the preparation, simply complete this short questionnaire by clicking here then we will be in touch. Please note that the questionnaire is on our sister site

We also have access to a range of Angel investors through an exclusive relationship with angelgroups – to find out more please go to www.angelgroups.co.uk. Angels not only provide access to funding but a range of business support and mentoring. We must stress that we don't offer investment advice only an introduction service.

BUSINESS PLANS AND FUNDING APPLICATIONS

A good business plan isn't just crucial for a funder, but is imperative for the business. Now this may come as a surprise but we don't write business plans. We help you create them as it's you that will be questioned on its content.

Our specialty is Creating and Funding Growth. Our consultancy service helps you develop the most compelling proposition to meet the needs of specific type of funding. Before you contemplate how you will raise your next funding, be it Innovation and R&D grant funding, debt or equity then please, give us a call and let us show you how we can make a difference.

INNOVATION GRANT FUNDING

Possessing an in-depth knowledge of Innovate UK, Horizon 2020 and a number of other specialist grant funding mechanisms, we know the best mechanism for you. Now because the amounts of grant funding and support are more significant it's probably reasonable to expect that the process is a little more, well, complex. And it is. Our role however goes well beyond the writing of an application (if needed). We have considerable experience in developing technology, working with R&D partners and accessing key supply chains.

 

R&D TAX CREDITS

There are many companies who purport to understand the demands of an R&D Tax Credit. Yet, without the knowledge and understanding of R&D, what is actually involved on a day-to-day basis this could be a tall claim.

If you have gained nothing else from this site we hope that our experience and knowledge in all area's of Innovation, R&D and the Funding thereof convinces you as to the breadth of our knowledge.

The thing is that R&D Tax Credits should not be treat in isolation. The funding of your Innovation and R&D needs to be considered and managed across the whole process and not by working on one element in isolation.

We also have a rather unique proposition. Because we take an holistic approach to your overall funding needs we can resolve your R&D Tax Credits regardless of how small. Most providers require you to have a minimum R&D tax claim of £20,000. Some require more. We don't. What's more we work on a NO WIN NO FEE basis.

PATENT BOX

A direct quote from HMRC states "Patent Box enables companies to apply a lower rate of Corporation Tax to profits earned after 1 April 2013 from its patented inventions. The relief will be phased in from 1 April 2013 and the lower rate of Corporation Tax to be applied will be 10%.

That's 10% Corporation Tax. What else can you do that will have such an impact on your bottom line. We would suggest nothing that is as cost effective or with the likelihood of success. Going back to our holistic approach we're sure you can appreciate the positive impact that this relief can have on your ability to raise funding.
