This 45 – 60 minute webinar will highlight the key sources of funding available to companies to help them to innovate and grow. The UK is a great place for companies to innovate and successive governments have improved the funding and tax breaks available to R&D intensive companies year on year. From tax breaks for investors through the EIS and SEIS investment schemes, the range of grants underpinning may key technology sectors to pump prime ideation and new product development, R&D Tax incentives to reward innovation and then Patent Box to further reward commercialisation and ongoing R&D activities.
The webinar will touch on all four areas giving a brief background to the schemes, the benefits to the company and hints and tips of how to access the funds with the narrative accompanied by appropriate anecdotes and case studies.
