Start-up loan in England & Wales. 

‘Start-Up Loans’ is a government-backed scheme, providing low-interest and unsecured repayable loans and free business support. Loans of up to £25,000 are available for people aged 18 or over, living in the UK.

Through its membership of ibd Business Advice Group, BGML can help you write your business plan, prepare and submit your application and support you through the early start-up phases and beyond. ibd Business Advice Group has successfully processed supported over 1,000 applications since the scheme was introduced.

R&D Tax Relief

This government-backed scheme is available to SMEs with less than 500 employees and either a turnover of less than €86m or a balance sheet of less than €100m.

Qualifying costs can include salaries/wages, subcontractors, items consumed in the development, utilities and certain software costs. Claimants can be technology or science-based.

You do not have to be a profitable business and in fact, the scheme can be more generous to loss-making companies. 

HMRC target to clear claims within 28 days of submission.

Other UK government-backed schemes

BGML and the umbrella network ibd Business Advisors Group Ltd can advise on the changing grant and loan schemes offered by the UK government. In some areas of the UK, capital investment grant support still exists. Some of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) schemes are likely to be replaced by UK government schemes before 31.12.2020.
