Capital Grants support investment projects and can be used to:

  • Launch a new business

Tax Credits are a special form of support aimed at improving cashflow and utilisation of working capital. Tax Credits are a growth area with the possibility to claw back up to two years and thereafter to claim year-on-year. Let MCS undertake your filing process with HMRC.
