The right partner

Identifying and securing the right innovation funding solution for your clients has never been more challenging.

We have tax incentives, like R&D tax relief, Patent Box and Capital Allowances. The there are all the different sources of funding - grants, loans, equity investment, business angels, venture capital and even crowdfunding.

Each route brings its own challenges, whether they're around eligibility, the application process or the potential impact they might have on other opportunities. Getting it right requires a combination of technical and scientific specialisms, industry experience, tax expertise, funding knowledge and - for those of your clients who have an international presence - local knowledge as well.

Unsurprisingly, very few accountants have all the skills and resources necessary to provide a comprehensive, holistic and global innovation funding service for their clients.

We do. And we'd love to partner with you, for the benefit of both your clients and your own business.

We employ the best people to ensure you and your clients get the best results

Finding and securing the right innovation funding and incentives for companies required a special blend of business, technology, tax and financial expertise. At ABGI we employ a large team of highly qualified and experienced scientists and engineers across all sectors, who undergo comprehensive and ongoing training on relevant legislation, regulation and HMRC guidance through our in-house ABGI Academy.

We do most of the work, so your clients don't have to

We appreciate that your clients have successful businesses to run, so we've perfected a process that keeps their time commitment to an absolute minimum. When preparing R&D tax credit claims, for example, our Innovation Funding Consultants gather all the information they need quickly and efficiently, peer-to-peer. We also write the Technical Report and handle any queries from HMRC. These are specialised, time-consuming activities that many providers leave to your clients.

We take quality very seriously, so you know your clients are in safe hands

ABGI is one of the very few providers to have ISO9001 accreditation. All our processes are independently audited and verified annually, so you know for a fact they're robust, proven and do everything they're meant to do.

We go further

Making the most of the tax incentive available to businesses is about identifying all their eligible activities and capturing all their relevant expenditure, while complying with HMRC's strict requirements. As technicians who understand the innovation challenges your clients face and the technological advances they're trying to achieve, you can rely on us to find more eligible activity than anyone else.

We have a great working relationship with HMRC

Earning the trust of tax authorities internationally is a cornerstone of our global business. In the UK, we deal with HMRC on a daily basis and have built up a very good relationship with them over the years. HMRC see us as experience, knowledgeable and reliable - a respect reflected in our impressively small 0.5% challenge rate for R&D tax credit claims in 2018.

We'll minimise any potential risks to your clients' businesses

While they can bring financial reward, applying for funding and securing tax incentives can also expose a business to risk, if not managed properly. Taking tax incentives as an example. HMRC's increasing diligence makes it more important than ever to submit accurate claims. Otherwise your clients risk enquiries and audits. Knowing our track record, HMRC only spot-check a very small percentage of our claims and we've defended every one successfully, achieving a 100% strike rate for our partners and clients.

We're a pleasure to deal with, which reflects well on you

Everyone at ABGI shares the same core values and these are reflected in everything we do. These include integrity, being supportive, always striving for excellence and challenging ourselves to deliver the best possible outcomes.
