Our technology and FinTech client base has grown significantly in recent years, in part due to the explosion of the sector in and around Guildford and London, driven by investment and infrastructure.
We support many clients who are fast growth start-ups or established and growing businesses in this sector by project managing mergers and acquisitions and raising finance in a tax efficient manner (especially SEIS and EIS). They are also often keen to explore grant funding options and capitalise on the tax relief opportunities around innovation – including Patent Box and R&D.
Our outsourcing team can help tech businesses to release resources and reduce costs by taking on tasks such as bookkeeping, management reporting and payroll. We can also assist with share option schemes which are a useful way of attracting and retaining talented employees. We provide accounts services to remove the burden of dealing with the preparation and filing of accounts and our corporate finance services (raising finance, exit planning and advisory), are particularly applicable to tech businesses looking to expand their reach and grow rapidly.
We work with a variety of technology businesses; from IT consultancy, FinTech and software development through to Software as a Service (SaaS) and RegTech (regulatory technology) businesses developing regulatory compliance software. We also act for cyber security businesses developing hardware and software solutions, as well as those who advise clients on cyber security. We are increasingly working with businesses which innovative products to automate or improve processes and businesses exploiting the Internet of Things (IoT) to develop IoT enabled products.
