Grant Funding & R&D Tax Credits – Biztech and UCMK Ask the Expert Event

30 March 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm BST

Biztech is hosting a special Ask The Expert event covering best practice and opportunities for grant funding.

In association with UCMK, Biztech is delighted to be joined by TBAT Innovation’s Managing Director, Matt Symonds, who will give an outline of grants available and pass on hints and tips for applying for financial help.

Matt has been assisting companies to grow through a mix of grant funding, technical consultancy and R&D Tax Credits for almost 10 years.

TBAT Innovation, based near Derby, has grown to a team of 16 consultants and they have successfully assisted its clients in accessing millions in R&D grants and R&D Tax Credits, vital to the continued growth of these companies.

Fredi Nonyelu, Biztech’s chairman, said: “Funding can transform the future of companies but there is a maze of opportunities and challenges in first finding the correct grants and then applying for them. We are delighted to have secured Matt’s services for this latest in our series of Ask The Expert events and look forward to a very productive event for both our members and guests.”

Matt said: “It becomes very difficult and time-consuming for companies to identify grant funding options let alone writing the applications but it can be a very worthwhile process.

“Another issue is with R&D Tax Credits and what is eligible spend – most companies don’t think they can claim but the definition is quite broad.”

The agenda for the Ask The Expert event includes:

  • An overview of grant funding
  • Innovate UK – what is available and how to apply
  • Horizon 2020 – What is available and how to apply
  • Hints, tips and tricks to applying for grant funding
  • Case Studies
  • R&D Tax Credits why businesses should invest time in maximising their R&D Tax Credit claim.
  • Differences between SME and Large company schemes
  • Hints, tips and eligible costs
  • Case studies
  • Q&A

In addition in advance of the Ask The Expert event, guests will have to choose to be able to find out more details about Biztech by attending our half-hour Annual General Meeting and hearing about the forum’s plans for the coming year.
