Grants Eligibility Assessment
With over 1500 industry assistance programs currently in operation across Australia and our Federal and State Government's constantly changing the mix, most companies find it difficult to understand and locate what may apply to them. TCF Services keeps abreast of all industry assistance programs and provides a grants eligibility assessment service with the expertise to prepare well presented applications on behalf of clients who rank highly against the eligibility criteria's that apply across various programs.
To access specialised support from Government, complex investment projects or unique Australian innovations often requires an effective engagement strategy plan to be implemented to gain support across all stakeholders and enable favourable access to supply arrangements supported by competitive or discretionary grant funding.This service particularly applies to new entrants in the Defence supply chain sector, large scale investment projects in regional areas and the Cleantech/ Renewables sector whereby your innovative story needs to be well represented.
R&D Tax Prepayment Loans
Through our sister company R&D Capital Partners, we offer R&D Tax Incentive claimants (eligible for the refundable 43.5% cash reimbursement) the ability to draw loans against eligible R&D expenditure incurred on a quarterly, half yearly or annual basis, by using their expected cash refund as security. In some instances we can also offer pre-funding against a robust R&D Plan and budget underpinned by a positive Advanced finding whereby the R&D activities and expenditures are yet to occur.
From butchers paper to the cloud, zipMoney proprietarily developed a digital credit and payments engine to facilitate point of sale financial transactions. In our formative years, TCF Services was pivotal in supporting our accelerated growth. Their deep understanding of our model and R&D activities, allowed TCF to turn around an expedited funding solution that met out capital needs and bridged us to the end of year full refund. By utilising TCF Services and R&D Capital Partners together with our seed investors, zipMoney was able to prove out its business model, before raising equity and debt from traditional markets leading to a successful listing on the Australian Stock Exchange in September 2015.
ShopReply has worked with Gerry Frittmann and his team at TCF Services to prepare and lodge our R&D Tax Incentive claims. We’ve found TCF to be knowledgable and professional and would recommend their services to other start-ups. TCF’s expert knowledge has enabled ShopReply to maximise its entitlements under these schemes, one such example was providing ShopReply with advice around claiming R&D Tax Incentive while also claiming the Commercialisation Australia grant leading to the receipt of unforeseen R&D Incentive benefits that we would not have received had we not engaged TCF.
Rick has helped steer us through the process of managing and lodging R&D tax claim in a most professional and engaging manner. There were quite a few things for us to consider and Rick consistently went above and beyond in the provision of excellent advice and made himself available after hours in order to help us get our systems in place. He is personable, an expert and good value. We are very happy with the support and outcomes Rick has been able to provide us and I would not hesitate to recommend Rick and the TCF team to my friends and colleagues.
Gerry Frittmann and the team at TCF have been assisting us with the preparation and submission of our application for R&D Tax Concessions since the 2011-12 financial year. Our business is involved in the research and development of an innovative plant-based pesticide which is unique in its activity and application. Gerry and his team have gone the extra mile in making sure they understand the issues surrounding our R&D pathway and have done everything possible to ensure that we understand and comply with the rules and regulations surrounding R&D Tax Concessions. TCF are very thorough and efficient in carrying out the necessary tasks and have, as far as possible, always met the timelines we have asked of them. I have no hesitation in recommending Gerry and his team for their efficient thoroughness.
