Grow Your Business

Establishing a business isn’t easy. Once you are generating profit from the sale of products and services means you are on the right track. But where would you go for help to grow your business?

The first thing most business owners associate with growth is to increase sales to new customers. But this may not be your only option. Have you considered:

  offering new products or services to existing customers?
making improvements to existing products and services through researching and development?
broadening your customer base by selling online?
exporting to new markets?
utilising crowdfunding as a way to build your brand and strengthen loyalty?

You may be able to invest in growing your business from retained profits. You could also consider raising external growth finance. This could be in the form of a business loan or other less well known products that allow you to fully exploit the opportunity at hand.  With Finpoint you get impartial advice on all your options and access to the largest panel of funders in the UK.

R&D Tax Credits

You’d be forgiven to think that there is no such thing as a free lunch. That is, unless the government has its fingers in the pie!

The R&D tax relief programme scheme was introduced in the early 2000s to support innovative businesses by providing them with a tax relief of up to 33%. The UK government approves on average of around £2.5bn tax refunds per year with the average amount claimed by SME’s being £35k.

The program is a recognition by Government that R&D expenditures can be high and that it can take years for a product to be market ready. With around 20,000 claims made every year the UK has one of the most successful R&D tax relief programmes in the world yet very few business owners are aware of the scheme.
To support the ambitions of high growth businesses that have a loyal client base, Finpoint has partnered exclusively with Seedrs. Seedrs is the most active funder in UK private companies, connecting high-growth businesses efficiently with private investors.

Whether you are looking to expand or want to fund a new product, this partnership gives you access to growth capital from private and institutional investors.

In order to qualify for this type of funding, your business needs to be comfortable to share your funding information publicly, be able to demonstrate early revenue and profitability, and have a plan that outlines how the investment will be utilised.

Investment readiness and equity funding

For scale up companies who are looking to raise equity or identify grants, Finpoint offers a Investment Readiness review service, which consists of two parts:
  1. a review of your investor information, and
  2. market intelligence specific for your venture in association with, the leading source of information on British high growth companies.
