Ayming collaborates with Private Equity (PE) and Venture Capital (VC) funds to align their portfolios with the latest HMRC guidelines in the UK, mainly focusing on optimising R&D tax positions and taking advantage of government grant funding. Given Ayming’s global consultancy expertise, we can extend our help to partners with investments worldwide, wherever R&D relief and grant schemes are in place.
We work closely with Portfolio Managers, Heads of Finance and Investment Directors to ensure that companies within their portfolios maximise the available innovation benefits. Given the evolving landscape of R&D Tax, coupled with the complexities related to company structures and ownership levels, it is crucial for companies to receive optimal advice in this dynamic sector. Ayming’s team of tax and sector innovation experts is available to address queries and provide advice on the schemes and changes to both the financial and operational aspects of the HMRC submission process.
Ayming works with funds, providing both advisory services and sharing thought leadership and educational content with clients’ teams and portfolio companies. This approach builds a deeper understanding of the benefits of these innovation funding schemes.
