Business grant & loan application consultancy

Grants for Industry (GFI) is a leading business grants & loans consultancy with an enviable reputation.

We specialise in securing government backed loans and grant funding for established manufacturers and innovative "early start" technology companies.  If you are a sole trader or retail outlet it is unlikely we will be able to help.

We work on a no-win no-fee basis and have enjoyed a 15 year success rate of around 87%.

The success criteria for these funds are complex but we understand them thoroughly – even the “secret” ones that are used to evaluate your application. We can advise you in detail how to maximise the chances of a successful application.

You also have the comfort of knowing that GFI has secured substantial funding for a large number of companies during the last 15 years. Some of this funding will almost certainly have been for companies that operate in your industry. Have a look at our case studies section.

After a brief introductory meeting we will be able to tell you if you have a good case. As described above, if we take the job, you have a near 90% chance of success – and remember that your grant application is personally written by company principal Bob Coase.

We undertake the entire application including business plan and financial forecasts for the following grants & loans:

  • Regional Selective Assistance – awarded to help with the cost of new plant/equipment/premises for companies in Scotland.
  • R&D and Smart grants – to help Scottish companies with the cost of research and development into innovative new products or processes.
  • Carbon Trust grants – for companies involved in low carbon technologies there are grant opportunities available including the new Carbon Trust Fasttrack entrepreneurs grant.
  • Government backed business loans – for companies in the North West, Yorkshire, Humber, the North East and East Scotland looking for funds for development or acquisition but unable to secure any/sufficient funding from conventional sources.
  • Fishing Grants – for fish processing plants anywhere in the UK planning to invest in new plant and equipment and/or alterations to premises.

The above grants and loans can be substantial and currently offer some of the best Government backed funding opportunities in the UK.

We anticipate more funding opportunities being introduced in the Autumn.
