Funding and Finance
Finance Yourself For Growth
Finance confuses more people than any other discipline in business; budgeting, cashflow, ROI, cash cycles, financial ratios.
Finance, or Cash as we like to call it, is just another resource that you use to help your business. Cash is the oxygen of your business. To get started you might need a Government-backed Startup loan, and to get growing you might need some help with training on an accounts software packages, checking a customer’s credit, finance, availability of grants or other advice.

R&D Tax Credits
Any company solving a technical or scientific uncertainty can claim back their research and development costs. This includes improvements to existing products, process improvement, testing, or developing a new way of doing something.
It is estimated that over 75% of eligible companies never see the R&D cash benefit come back into their business because they do not know, or have not been advised, that they can claim.
