GovGrant is a market leading UK based innovation consultancy. We empower businesses to realise their innovation potential, we reward the risk-takers and only focus on commercial outcomes. We create value for our clients by recognising their R&D and maximising the value of their Intellectual Property. We do this primarily through the UK governments R&D tax credit and Patent Box schemes.

Commercialise your Intellectual Property

IP Harvest is a fixed-fee service that answers the question “Does my business have something worth patenting?” We don’t try to harvest the whole field. We are looking for a single blade of grass – that single patentable idea that helps our clients to access Patent Box and save thousands of corporation tax, year after year.

On average, we have increased existing tax credit claims by 200%, because we know how and where to find the full potential of your claim. GovGrant have delivered over £250m of client benefit to-date and have an enquiry rate of less than 0.2% compared to the industry wide rate of 14%.

Services

GovGrant can help you maximise the value of your innovation by identifying commercial opportunities in your R&D activity. The R&D tax relief scheme is designed to boost innovation by supporting businesses who seek to improve or overcome challenges and uncertainties in their products and processes.  

 

GovGrant can help you actively identify, value, protect and commercialise your innovation. We identify opportunities for patent applications and claiming a Patent Box corporation tax saving. But the first step is to run an IP Harvest to pick out those key opportunities and give you a clear indication of the potential value of your IP. This will quickly and simply give you the confidence that it’s worth proceeding on this journey to commercialise your IP.  For those that want to know how strong their IP is, our IP Strength Test will test your IP against the competition.
