Grant support for businesses expanding their UK operations is administered by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. In England, grant support for major projects is provided through Regional Growth Fund.  BKR’s new member firm in the UK, UNW LLP (Newcastle Upon Tyne), has significant experience advising clients on how to maximise support under this scheme, and, as UNW Corporate Finance Partner Neville Bearparkpoints out, time is running out to apply to this scheme.

“Regional Growth Fund is operated through a series of bidding rounds, and the current round, which may be the last for some time, closes on 20 March 2013. The scheme supports companies investing in the UK, who will create or safeguard jobs either through capital investment or R&D activities.”

Any member firm with clients planning to invest in operations in England should contact Neville at either +44 191 243 6011 or to see whether this grant scheme may be able to benefit their client.  Neville and his team in Newcastle have advised many major corporations, including Nissan, Bosch and Pirelli.
