Reuben and Charlotte talk about GrantTree

"The process with you was effortless - as previously said, your understanding of the start-up industry, Software as a Service and Geckoboard made it very easy. Granttree demonstrated a genuine interest in our business and how it operates and were very considerate of the time constraints of the team. The service exceeded my expectations and I am a very satisfied customer."
Clemency Joyce, Director at Geckoboard geckoboard.com

"We spoke to a couple of other companies, both of whom expected us to write at least an initial draft of the technical claim. GrantTree sent us a short form which took our technical lead half an hour to complete and their writers did the rest. This meant our technical team didn’t lose time working on our product."

Our prices

Length Success Fee
Rolling 30%
3 claim years 25%
5 claim years 20%
10 claim years 15%

There's also a £1,000 setup fee to kick off the process, but the setup fee is waived if you are willing to follow our startup-friendly "1-2-3" process, which speeds things up on both sides.

Scheme Service Success fee Setup fee
PoM Full 10% £500
PoC Full 15-20% £2,000
PoC Advisory 11.25-15% £1,000
PoC Ultra-light 7.5-10% £500
DoP Full 15-20% £3,000
DoP Advisory 11.25-15% £1,500
DoP Ultra-light 7.5-10% £500

If your claim size is:

£20,000

We will advance you £10,000 and the fee will be £1,000, 5% of claim value.

The Power-Up Funding pricing is based on a fee of 5% of claim value at £20k, increasing to 10% of claim value at £50k, and we will advance up to £50k or 50% of claim size, whichever is lower.

If you also sign up for our standard tax credit service, the fee is a flat 5% of claim value, up to £50k advanced.

The cost is independent of how much time HMRC ends up taking to deliver the money.

Our Team

Paulina Sygulska
Aka Pow! GrantTree founder, public speaker, über-networker. Her superpower: the ability to turn anything into a dirty joke.
Amar Popat
With a Cambridge degree in Economics and 6 years in the banking sector, you might think Director Amar is a corporate guy who wears suits and tells people off. You couldn't be more wrong. You'll see when you meet him.
Daniel Tenner
Aka Swombat. Serial entrepreneur, tech geek and startup blogger, prolific HN commenter. GrantTree founder. His superpower: the ability to turn anything into a so-called "dan joke".
George Clements
George used to be a navy boy on the HMS Illustrious. Now, as a GrantTree director, he preaches the benefits of open, democratic cultures based around trust rather than control. People change!
Jason Cooper
Jason, aka CoopDawg, can occasionally be spotted playing pool in the office when he emerges from the appropriately named "Jason's corner".
Elitsa Dhermendzhyiska
Math geek and practical visionary, who turned down a top 10 global MBA program to dabble in cash flow optimisation and marketing at a tech incubator in Bali. Now a client sorceress at GrantTree.
Chris Campbell
Chris studied Politics at Glasgow University before working in a Government Strategy Unit. He joined Granttree in 2013 as a client manager, and is also a PhD researcher in surveillance. He’s also really good at hiding stuff.
Vwede Okorefe
Vwede is our Office Dom, aka Office Manager, which means that nothing that matters can happen without her approval.
Greenie Cheng
Greenie moved from Hong Kong to join GrantTree in 2013. She combines three superpowers: a law degree, a computer science masters, and some serious tax kung-fu.
Alexandra Dohi
Under her cool and composed exterior, Alex hides a background in Neuroscience and Psychology. She'll use it whenever talking to you, but you'll never figure out how exactly.
Rowan Gallagher
Rowan brings to the table financial knowledge gained from 4 years trading in the City of London and a CS degree from Trinity College Dublin.
Robin
Our main grant-writer for all things tech, Robin is a mysterious, shadowy figure. The NSA is scared of him.
Sarah Malter
Sarah's a Doctor and an NLP Masteress with a serial entrepreneurial streak. She often teams up with Alex to ensure complete psy-ops coverage on dangerous missions.
Don Slope
Also known as George mk II, the Don is not to be kidded about with. Among numerous valuable achievements, he also (really) built our 20-foot table and benches. Really.
Steve Leung
