What to expect from our webinar:

Join B-Global and TBAT Directors, Matt Symonds and Sam Stephens to find out how to access Grant Funding and R&D Tax Relief for your innovative projects!

Businesses all over the UK are benefiting from the generous Government Schemes available to fund research and development and TBAT’s job is to help businesses access these crucial funding opportunities.

Grant Funding is available through many funding bodies to accelerate innovation in the UK by de-risking highly innovative research and development projects.

R&D Tax Relief is a HMRC incentive, designed to inspire innovation within UK businesses, by rewarding them with a percentage of their expenditure as either Corporation Tax relief or a cash-repayment.

We will cover:

Current Grant Funding Opportunities

How to access Grant Funding

Benefits of R&D Tax Relief

How to claim R&D Tax Relief
