techUK has announced a regional programme of SME Business Clinics in the “Access to Finance Series” aimed at helping members find funds for business growth.
These seminars will focus on the Business Growth Fund and the government’s R&D Tax Credit Scheme, which are administered via HMRC.
The sessions will be chaired by techUK and provide opportunities for obtaining deeper knowledge of techUK and networking with other local tech organisations.
techUK has played a key and unique role since R&D Tax Credits were first introduced for SMEs in April 2000 by influencing policy and ensuring innovative software development, which is viewed favourably by HMRC, is eligible expenditure, where the criteria are met.
Terry Toms founder of @RandDTaxUK will be talking about how SMEs can identify & claim for eligible costs, he will cover in particular –
- Why HMRC will pay for up to 32% of your R&D Costs.
- Why so many technology companies miss out on the money R&D Tax Credits can provide.
- How R&D Tax Credit rules in last five years, & this April’s budget, make even more money for technology SMEs.
- Why many companies underestimate the extent of their qualifying R&D Tax Credit Costs.
The government sees R&D Tax Credits as a key lever for driving up sectorial employment and generating exports. As the rules have changed the scheme is increasingly rewarding for SMEs.
There are still some places available and full event details are on the techUK website event page for the SME Business Clinic book now to attend.
