Since we set up shop in 2010, GrantTree has helped hundreds of the UK’s most innovative companies to raise money through R&D Tax Credits and Innovation Grants. Last week we hit a new milestone. We are proud to announce that we have now helped to raise over £60 million for UK companies, and that figure is growing every day.
Thanks to the funding raised, we’ve helped companies hire new, brilliant people, design fantastically innovative solutions and grow to new heights. This is the key reason why we love what we do: hearing about our clients’ success stories is what makes us get up in the morning and we intend to keep driving this innovation forward in all aspects of what we do.
As well as being open about what we have raised, we also like to keep our pricing completely transparent. We have nothing to hide when it comes to our fees and so our price list is always publicly available. We will tell you upfront what our services will cost you and we won’t surprise you with hidden charges once the process is underway.
This culture of openness is a big part of what we do, and it also dictates how we behave as an employer. In light of recent revelations about the Gender Pay Gap, we were featured on Sky News as an example of an employer with a truly fair pay system. Our transparent pay policy allows all employees, male and female, to choose their own salary and to see exactly what their colleagues are earning.
Our co-founder and CEO Paulina explains the thinking behind this:
‘At GrantTree we believe in a different way of working. We work hard to attract the best male and female talent, so our transparent pay and open culture gives all employees freedom and confidence to develop and grow in our organisation.’
Operations Director Andrew Ormerod also praises the transparency of the system:
‘When everyone knows what their colleagues are paid, salaries become more than just a random figure, they should be justified. GrantTree has total transparency and trust across the organisation, from the communications between us to our salaries. This means that the barriers between us are broken down, and we can be really effective and open about what we do.’
We believe that our success lies in our fair treatment of both our staff and our customers. We aim to build an atmosphere of trust and support, allowing us to give the best possible service to our clients, and get the most out of our employees.
Raising £60 million pounds for UK companies in just seven years is a great achievement, and we hope that it’s just the beginning. If your company is dedicating time and money to innovation, you may be entitled to R&D Tax Credits. The application process can seem daunting, but that’s where we come in. We have experts on hand to guide you, and we can even advance you 50% of the value of your claim within 48 hours. Get in touch today and let’s start working towards the next £60 million!
