WhatBox Consulting Ltd first reached out to TBAT Innovation Ltd to discuss R&D Tax Credits for their development project and becoming a Referral Partner.
WhatBox takes deeply complex technology challenges and combines them with effective partnership and funding solutions to create high-value commercial reality. Their extensive practical experience of working at the interface of industry, academic and investor relationships allows them to bring innovation ambition to life and value the importance of people and collaborations.
In 2021, WhatBox Consulting Ltd connected with TBAT Innovation Ltd via the TBAT Innovation R&D Tax Calculator submission, to look into whether they could make an R&D Tax Credits claim for their on-going platform development project.
After initial scoping meetings, TBAT’s Senior Consultant, Ian Davie confirmed that WhatBox were eligible to make a R&D claim and worked closely with CEO, Kate Barnard, to complete the financial element of their claim.
Following discussions about the support WhatBox offer to their clients, connecting Universities, Industry & Government to collaborate and perform exciting research and development projects, TBAT quickly realised a partnership would be beneficial to both businesses, as the services both companies offer are complimentary to each other.
WhatBox joined the TBAT Partner Referral Scheme so they could refer their clients that have successfully arranged the collaborations they require, to then obtain additional funding for their projects with TBAT; this truly adds value to their clients, utilising TBAT’s expert innovation funding support services.
In turn, TBAT Innovation will refer prospective clients with great innovation projects, that require strong collaborative partners to Whatbox, to identify the UK and world expertise those clients need technical support for a project.
To date, their clients have successfully claimed R&D Tax Relief with TBAT, and continue to stay in touch regularly to explore additional funding opportunities.
WhatBox will continue to work closely with TBAT to refer suitable clients, creating opportunities to apply for Grant Funding with TBAT’s expert help, and to claim R&D Tax Relief on their innovative projects and projects with the right collaborative partners.
"Working with TBAT has been a serendipitous partnership. As the founder of a small business you don’t know what you don’t know and you need to surround yourself with good people and experts in their field. TBAT are the scarecrow of R&D Tax Credit companies, they are OUTSTANDING in their field!"
