Who We Are

TBAT are a value-led independent consultancy, that assists UK organisations in accessing grant funding and tax incentives to drive innovation.

About TBAT Innovation

TBAT are a value-led independent consultancy with over 20 years’ experience working with technology & research and development organisations all over the UK – helping them to progress their projects from beginning to end. We believe that offering our wide range of innovation support services is crucial to helping companies succeed with their R&D projects and adds value to our clients.

Innovation is inherently risky, making the need for additional funds crucial to successfully commercialising a new technology. With some Grant Funding only available through a competitive process and R&D Tax needing to be claimed via HMRC, our expert assistance is the key to success.

We can help you to access Grant Funding, R&D Tax Credits, Video Games Tax Relief, SEIS / EIS, Capital Allowances and Patent Box. Complimentary to our core services and to allow your focus to be on the project at hand, we also offer Grant Claim Management and HMRC Enquiry Support.
