Is your business innovative?

Does it create and develop new or improved products, new software solutions, improve processes or solve technical problems?

Did you know that there is a wide range of support and a variety of options available that can help your business from:

  • R&D tax credits – £26 in corporation tax savings for every £100 spent innovating,
  • Intellectual Property (IP) protection – Patents, Trade Marks, Designs,
  • Patent Box relief – reduce your corporation tax rate to 10%,
  • Grant funding and winning tenders,
  • Accounting in the cloud

Join Shorts chartered accountants’ Innovation Taxes Group, patent attorneys Withers & Rogers, grant specialists FCS Associates and other innovative businesses for a roundtable morning workshop event to understand what support is available to your business, and how it could benefit from it.

There will be a couple of forms that will need to be completed either prior to the event or on the day and these will be sent to you once you have registered. One form is to ensure you are a small to medium enterprise, the second is to capture any business support you have received over the last 3 years to ensure you haven’t exceeded €200,000. If you have previously completed these forms at a Growth Hub event you will not have to complete another set.
