Grants

The UK Government typically spends an estimated £2.5 billion per annum on business support which includes direct grant funding through the Regional Growth Fund in England; Wales Economic Growth Fund and Repayable Business Finance in Wales; and the Regional Selective Assistance in Scotland.

In addition the European Commission made a significant contribution via grant to R&D, infrastructure and training through a range of European programmes.

Governments offer both traditional grant funding, as well as repayable funding schemes, that can provide cash up front with favourable repayment and interest terms to help unlock cash flow in projects.

You may be eligible for grant funding if your company is:

  • Expanding its operations;
  • Investing in new or innovative plant and machinery/processes;
  • Creating or safeguarding jobs; or
  • Potentially downsizing.

Examples of how we have helped our clients

Manufacturing company

We worked closely with the company to develop the need for grant argument and demonstrate financial constraint. The company received grant funding that allowed them to bring forward 3 years’ worth of capital investment projects. The funding enabled them to take best advantage of market opportunities that are currently present.

Family owned food manufacturer

Working with a long established family business, we helped a company to be granted an up-front, repayable loan by the Welsh Government, which meant they had cash to use as a deposit against a new piece of capital equipment. This loan was interest free with a capital payment holiday and provided the cash injection needed to start the project.

Automotive manufacturing company

We helped a large automotive manufacturer to submit an application under the Regional Growth Fund. The fund helped the company secure the production of an new component in the UK rather than in Japan. We worked within very tight timescales to deliver a robust application, which was ultimately successful.
