We specialise in helping businesses identify and apply for grant funding that is needed to fund R&D projects and/or facilitate business growth.
We can help guide you through the process of applying for grants through UK Research & Innovation (UKRI), research councils and Innovate UK.
If there is no current funding call suitable for your technology, we can also help you identify alternative funding.
Our grant funding team will work closely with you to create a tailored approach to securing the required finance. Our approach is to get to know your business, develop a deep understanding of your R&D activity and requirement for funding so that we can prepare an application on your behalf.
We are able to use our many years’ experience as chartered tax advisers and R&D tax relief specialists to ensure that the application for funding is both substantiated and robust.
We have many years of working with innovative companies and a loyal client base.
