News 23/08/2021

This scheme intends to bolster post-pandemic recovery and enable businesses to grow by providing them with the opportunity to confidently invest in their IP.

The UK government will contribute up to £5,000 of additional funding to allow businesses to put the recommendations from the IP audit report into action.

What services does the grant cover?

The IP access grant can be used to cover costs associated with:

- IP valuation and insurance

- Licensing and franchising

- The management and commercialisation of IP assets

- Tax relief advice

- Fees for IP services

What businesses can access the IP Access grant?

To be eligible, the business should have undergone a part-funded IP audit between April 2020 and March 2022 with an IP Audit Plus partner (for example, the Welsh Government, the Enterprise Europe Network or Scottish Enterprise).
