We are now working remotely due to COVID-19.

We exist to support innovative businesses to grow and succeed, and we want to continue to do this as effectively as possible throughout this crisis  

We love meeting with clients, and although face-to-face meetings are postponed for a while, our advisors are still chatting with clients on the phone, and we've been enjoying video conference calls with both colleagues and clients

We appreciate that things aren't as straightforward for some of our clients, and we hope you’re managing to find suitable ways forward for your business

How we'd like to help

If you've wanted to catch up with us for a while, and you now have some time for planning, we’d love to hear from you

  • Our portfolio of services includes free business support services through our EEN team
  • We provide free R&D Tax Credit reviews to check that you're maximising your claim
  • We're helping some of our clients to bring forward their year end, so that they can make their R&D Tax Credit claim earlier
  • If you are conducting R&D related to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will process your R&D Tax Credit claim for free for one year

Please get in touch for an informal chat by ringing 01925 506100 or emailing info@inventya.com
