New Media & Technology

Developments in technology in recent years and blurring of barriers between different types of technology have fueled a growth in new business sectors and/or new business models, including new media, fintech, clean technology etc. Success in these sectors requires creativity and innovation, combined with a flexible and open-minded approach. These are also qualities that we aim to bring to our clients in these sectors. 

We work with businesses from the start up stage through to sale or flotation, and help the business grow both in and outside the UK. We help in many ways. That can be ensuring effective and appropriate accounting and management systems are in place to give a sound financial structure to support the business. It can be helping the business raise finance to grow, and using tax advantaged investment reliefs (SEIS, EIS) to help them do so. Often there are a range of tax reliefs, Research and Development reliefs and creative industry reliefs that can benefit businesses operating in these sectors. We can help maximise the benefit of those reliefs. Frequently businesses in these sectors can be doing business across borders from a very early stage in their existence. We can help guide them through the complexities of tax and business across borders. Keeping key employees can be the key to success and we can help with looking at ways to reward employees including share option and incentive arrangements.
