Businesses need cash more than ever. Fact.

R&D tax credits are one of the most effective ways to generate it. Fact.

But with all the financial support measures we’ve seen rolled out over the last few months, including the Job Retention Scheme, CBILS, and the Bounce Back Loan Scheme, there are new impacts and interactions you need to know about when compiling your claim.

That’s why our R&D team are putting on this interactive webinar. So they can talk you through the key points and what they mean for your business, and you can get all of your questions answered, there and then.

It will be taking place on Thursday 5 November, 2-3pm. Expect fireworks.

JONNY BREWSTER Head of R&D Incentives (South)

Jonny has been working full-time in R&D Incentives for over a decade.  In this time, he’s helped companies large and small – from billion-dollar revenue-generating household names to pre-revenue entrepreneurial start-ups – access vital funding through R&D Incentives to allow them to continue their growth journey.  In recent months, a lot of his clients’ focus has switched to generating additional cashflow through R&D Incentives to help keep the lights on throughout the pandemic.

Holding a Masters degree in Physics, Jonny’s career before tax was within the UK MoD – where he was involved in science-y stuff (that he really can’t talk about) but enables him to engage with technologists from any area of industry.  Since the switch to tax, he’s become a fully-qualified Chartered Tax Advisor and represented one of the Big4 on the R&D Consultative Committee.
