DO YOU HAVE IN-HOUSE GRANTS EXPERTISE?
DO YOU KNOW WHICH GRANTS YOUR COMPANY MIGHT BE ENTITLED TO?
DO YOU HAVE THE RESOURCES TO MANAGE GRANT DRAWDOWN/PORTFOLIOS EFFICIENTLY?

Our experience shows us that many CEOs, Finance Executives and R&D Executives
answer “no” to all the above questions.  The main reason is that companies cannot
afford to have their own in-house grants experts.

Grant Assist provides independent, experienced grants services to
multinational and Irish owned companies. It provides immediate relevant grant
information in one phone call or meeting and can relieve resource-constrained
finance teams of complex grant matters.

Grant Assist: Process. Simplified.

The main grant awarding body for Irish indigenous companies is Enterprise Ireland (EI). EI provides
financial assistance to eligible companies employing more than 10 people. Irish companies employing

GRANT ELIGIBILITY

Many companies waste valuable management time trying to find out if there are any
relevant grants for them…. many give up in frustration! We can save management time
by quickly identifying grants that may be relevant and helping you to understand the
application process.

GRANT APPLICATIONS / NEGOTIATIONS

All grants will require you to undertake an application process. Working with you, we
will draw up the application ensuring that it meets all the relevant eligibility criteria.
We will ensure that the grant offered is as attractive as possible and is suitably structured
and relevant to achieve maximum drawdown. There is no point in securing
grants that the company cannot subsequently drawdown.

MANAGING GRANTS – CURRENT AND FUTURE

Securing grants is just the start. Companies need to understand the drawdown process
and ensure they draw down their grants in a timely and efficient manner. Companies
that are in receipt of different grant awards can find it dificult to manage grant portfolios
and ensure they meet the terms and conditions of various Grant Agreements.

Grant Assist offers a service that keeps track of all Grant Agreements offered to a
company and helps the relevant personnel with the timing and processing of grant
draw downs. This service can be offered on a retainer basis which includes spotting
opportunities for further grant assistance.

AVOIDING CLAWBACK

Occasionally a company does not progress according to
projections made at the time of a grant application. It is important to
understand when clawback may be due and how it can be avoided. We
work with companies to ensure they understand how to avoid potential
grant repayment.

If you have any grant query, large or small, just give us a call. We will do an initial call
or meeting free of charge. If you are interested in further assistance, we will agree a fee
based on mutually agreed terms and objectives.
