    Financial Services

    We work with partners and a team with significant expertise in the area of the finance function and can review both the operational effectiveness of your existing finance team as well as providing an overall financial health check for your business. This can identify potential areas of concern or weakness as well as areas of opportunity and strength in the finances of the business, enabling the senior team to focus their energies on the most profitable products and service lines to increase margin for the business as a whole. We can identify potential risks surrounding your working capital position and can advise on, and implement, the changes that are needed to improve it, providing more cash for investment in growing the business or simply to pay out to the shareholders.

    • R&D Tax Credit

      R&D Tax Credit

      Many businesses, sometimes without even realising it, engage in product or process development activities that will qualify them to receive Research and Development tax credits from the government. In certain circumstances, claims can be backdated up to 2 financial years from the date of the first claim and can be a source of significant additional cash to a company, both in the first year of a claim and on an ongoing basis. Has your firm looked into developing a new product - even if it was not ultimately successful and taken to market? Have you customised your software? Have you developed an App? You may be eligible to receive R&D tax credits. We have partnered with specialists in the area who have helped more than 1100 business reclaim over £112m in tax credits since September 2012. By carefully assessing your situation and guiding you in the claims process, our partners have a 100% success rate for claims they have made!

    • Start-Up Loans

      Start-Up Loans

      We have a special partnership with one of the UK's best Start-Up Loan lenders. If your company is less than 2 years old you may qualify for an unsecured personal loan to provide a cash injection for your business. The cash can be used for any business-related purpose. These government-funded loans, given to the founders of a business, can be up to £25,000 per person and can provide invaluable cash to start or grow your early-stage business. Loans are repayble over 1-5 years at a fixed 6% interest rate, far below that which might be offered by a bank to a new business. We can assist with the application including things like cash flow forecasts and business plans.
