Scotland is a major player in attracting and developing innovative life science enterprises.
Whether start-up, university spin-out or established inward investor. Common to all such enterprises is the need for advisors who understand the dynamic potential of the life sciences sector and are able to guide and support such businesses at all stages of their growth. French Duncan has experienced partners and staff with vast experience of advising clients in this sector. For example, you can meet the team on the first Thursday of each month at Corporate Partners Clinic at Biocity. Assistant Tax Manager, Lisa Scott, will be there or you can email Lisa - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Undoubtedly our unrivalled experience in securing grants and excellent record in Research & Development tax reliefs has helped many businesses where cash flow is paramount in the early years. Like our clients, we think out of the box and see today’s challenges as tomorrow’s success stories.
The new Patent Box regime is already attracting more innovative companies to locate in Scotland and our experience and knowledge of the life sciences sector is helping our clients maximise the profit streams included within the regime. We are well connected with a number of highly regarded Patent Attorney’s for those clients at the start of the life sciences journey.
We also have well established connections with Venture Capital funds and industry associations, such as LINC.
Our team, comprising accounts, corporate finance and tax professionals, also work with more established businesses to help in the latter stages of fund raising.
We help structure businesses to make them tax efficient propositions for investors, assist with employee share based incentives to provide golden handcuffs and aim to be your trusted adviser, working with you to achieve your exit goals, whatever these may be.
