The service could save some Lancashire businesses a considerable sum of money.


Chamber R & D Tax Credit Scheme

R&D is key to business success and having the correct expertise is vital to our members. There are still thousands of pounds available and as a Chamber of Commerce is it our responsibility to provide a seamless service to our members (if appropriate) so they can obtain these funds to re-invest into their business.

We are seeking proposals and quotations from within our membership to provide an R&D tax claim service as part of our membership offering.  Download our R & D tender proposal to find out more.  The closing date for submissions is Friday 23rd June 2017.

HS2 rail contracts:

A new table has been published online for companies who may be looking for business opportunities connected with the High Speed Two Ltd (HS2) organisation. The firm, which is responsible for developing and promoting the UK’s new, high speed rail network, has recently uploaded a ‘Contracts Opportunities Table’ on the business section of its website.

The table provides a view of contracts being directly procured by HS2 Ltd, as well as their status.

It allows visitors to find out contact details for suppliers who have been invited to tender for, or who have been awarded, contracts with HS2.

Businesses seeking opportunities to become part of the HS2 supply chain will be able to engage early with HS2’s direct contractors and prepare for the likely indirect opportunities each contract will provide. HS2 will regularly update the page and, as a result, they recommend that any interested firms visit it regularly.

The table can be viewed online at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/hs2-contract-opportunities

This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
