Grants are provided to encourage investment that will lead to increased employment, innovation, greenness and growth. Unfortunately, most eligible businesses don't get them. We can help with this! 

The three main investment categories are:

  • Innovation (products and processes)

  • Capital expenditure

  • Business development (new staff, training, marketing, operational improvements)

At any time now and after we have likely left the EU there will be hundreds of schemes managed on a national, regional or local basis by Councils, Chambers, LEPS, Growth Hubs and Universities to name a few.

There are a number of reasons why you might not get the grant funding you may be eligible for:

  • You don't know grants are available at all, or until it's too late.

  • You don't know where to look to find out more

  • You don't look because you assume you won't be eligible

  • You look but the guidance notes seem to disqualify you.

  • You think you're eligible but the application process appears to be a bureaucratic nightmare ( it often is).

It’s hard to know if a programme currently exists, where to go, and whether you’re eligible before you even apply! But if you don’t ask you don’t get!

My tip, if you’re considering spending on something new or different, think grant and ask a specialist as long as possible before you spend. Grants cannot be given retrospectively so you could miss out on 50% + saving.
