Companies often underestimate the amount of time it takes to determine eligibility for grant funding and identify relevent grants. The grant application process itself can also require significant management input and administration time.
We have outlined below some ways in which we believe we can save you time and, where possible, help you source some extra funding:
Eligibility to receive grants
We can help identify which grants your business might be eligible to receive and help prepare for an initial meeting with relevant grant authorities in Ireland. Outside Ireland we can liaise with our international team to identify potential grants in relevant countries.
We can help you with the completion of applications, particularly if you are required to submit a business plan or strategy plan. We can also help you to negotiate with grant authorities to secure the most attractive and suitably structured package for your company.
It is important that you draw down grants awarded on a timely, efficient basis. All grant claims must be audited. Our grant audit service will ensure that there isn’t a delay in your company drawing down grant monies.
If you have already received grants but are unclear about your grant status and the outstanding obligations or entitlements you have, we can review your existing Grant Agreements and provide a status report indicating amounts to be drawn down, outstanding obligations and action to be taken.
If your business performance doesn’t go according to plan, we will advise you on how to manage any potential grant clawback or repayment issues that arise.
