Micro-breweries will get the low down on securing funds for research and development at a trade show this week.
Jumpstart, the company created to help UK businesses make successful applications to HM Revenue & Customs for research and development tax relief applications, will be putting advice and information on tap at the four-day BeerX event, which gets under way on tomorrow.
Fenay Bridge-based Brewfitt, which supplies beer cooling and dispense equipment, will be among those exhibiting at the event, which is to be held at iceSheffield.
BeerX is a key event in the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) beer festival calendar – with more than 300 of the UK’s best beers scheduled to be represented.
Each beer has already won its heat in regional SIBA Beer competitions and will be available for sampling by thousands of beer enthusiasts.
Jumpstart numbers many well-known brewers, including marker leader, Brew Dog, among its clients.
The company will tell visitors that while many brewing companies have already been successful in their tax relief claims to HMRC, the sector as a whole is still failing to secure a potential financial windfall from the millions that go unclaimed each year.
