how do grants work

About Business Grants

Grants for established businesses who are looking to grow their business or innovate. Grants can fund new machinery, moving premises, marketing costs, licences and much more. Each grant is different and will have varying criteria. If you are creating jobs, please enquire with us now. Nothing can be claimed for retrospectively with a grant. A grant is for future business growth projects.

123 Grants offers a free grant finding service to established UK businesses who have 4+ employees. [not non profits or charities]

If you know you are moving, expanding or about to embark on a project[s] to grow your business, and/or if you are taking on staff, please get in touch now.

If you leave looking for a grant until the last minute, you will find that you will need to spend the money on your project before the grant process is complete [can take 4 weeks to 4+ months].

You cannot claim any costs retrospectively with business grants.

Grant criteria and what you can spend the money on varies. We will advise when we find suitable grants.

About R&D Tax Credits

Billions are already set aside by the treasury for UK businesses to claim. Ask for a free R&D assessment. We know what makes a successful R&D claim. Unlike grants, with R&D tax credits, claims can be made retrospectively. We can go back over the last 2 tax years, and also every year thereafter. You can choose to take a reduction in your income tax liability or a cash refund. It's your money. It's up to you.
