Billions of Business Grants available to SMEs

Are you getting your share?

Over £5bn worth of grants available to UK businesses

Here's the background

Business grants are not handed out without purpose, but every year there is around £2.5bn in UK publicly funded business support made available to business organisations up and down the country.

Add to this the grants and financial assistance available from the European Union and the result is a significant financial resource available specifically to assist and improve UK businesses.

These grants are available to most business organisations to include small and medium sized businesses, partnerships, the self employed and large corporates.

Community and Voluntary groups and not for profit organisations can also apply for grants which are founded to promote social inclusion and development. The funds available for these sectors are very large and run into many billions of pounds and to put some perspective to this there is £2.7bn available for good causes which remain unallocated.

The UK Government has stated that it “believes in enterprise and opportunity and wants to create the right conditions for businesses to thrive and prosper, making the UK the best place in the world to start and expand a business” .

The grants system is a key area for delivering on this vision but the process is still bureaucratic and cumbersome which often explains why many businesses fail to capitalise on the funds available to them.

Below is an indication of the types of grants typically available:

Business Grants new business start-up costs
Business Grants business planning
Business Grants marketing planning and material costs
Government Grants corporate identity costs
Government Grants business growth

Government Grants e-commerce and website investment costs
