Research and development tax specialist boosted with investment during the pandemic



GovGrant is a leading research and development tax credit and innovation advisory business experiencing strong growth. Established in 2006, GovGrant was one of the first players in the research and development market. Now with 900 clients ranging from startups to FTSE 250 clients, they offer a full range of services – adding Patent Box and other IP services and research and development capital allowances to the core research and development offering.

GovGrant’s strategy has been to invest in management and systems to develop a platform for growth which has already yielded strong results.

Santander took the time to really understand the business, focussing on the things that matter rather than asking for endless data or excess diligence. I’d say Santander is client centric and we’ve seen proactive engagement from them as part of their response to Covid-19

CEO GovGrant

Santander’s Structured Finance Growth Capital team were able to provide the company with a tailored funding solution to enable their growth to continue throughout the pandemic.

We are delighted to support GovGrant in the next stage of their growth journey. Throughout the process it was clear we are backing a strong management team and a business which is going from strength to strength in a strong and growing sector
