Giving to charity is an honourable, kind-hearted thing to do, yet for many, the giving stops once we enter our office or place of work.

If you’re raising money for your business, don’t ignore the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS). These offer new and growing young businesses in the UK attractive vehicles for securing inward investment. They benefit both the investor and recipient – and they are backed by the Government.
Product development is an essential part of any business. Big businesses normally have dedicated teams for product development, whereas small businesses won’t often have the funds for this. However it is essential that small businesses still invest in product development as it will help the business grow and expand.
