As the largest and fastest growing R&D tax relief specialist in the UK, providing consultancy services to companies from £1m to £2bn across the full range of commerce and industry, Jumpstart knows a thing or two about innovation and collaboration. 

This is why we are proud to sponsor the Interface Excellence Awards 2014, which recognise the success and achievement of collaborative partnerships between business and academia.

The Interface Excellence Awards will not only celebrate the success of existing Interface partnerships, but also encourage other businesses to tap into the wealth of benefits that partnership with Scotland’s world leading academic and research institutions can bring.

At Jumpstart, we work tirelessly to promote growth and awareness of the benefits of the UK R&D tax relief scheme. Companies can secure tax benefits in the form a payable cash credit, a tax rebate, or a deduction that can be used against future profits. These benefits are of crucial importance and can make a real difference to the finances of dynamic and expanding companies.

Brian Williamson, Managing Director at Jumpstart, says: “Scotland has been, and continues to be responsible for some of the greatest innovations in the international arena, so it is extremely important to encourage businesses to innovate, to maintain Scotland’s world-lead in many sectors.”

“I would urge all companies – whether they think they qualify for the scheme or not – to look into this without delay. It doesn’t cost you a penny to get an expert opinion, but could be worth thousands of pounds.”
