ACAD Welcomes Two New Members Offering Financial Support Services

It is a little known fact that Asbestos Removal contractors can take advantage of a range of tax incentives through HMRC that literally provides you with cash in the bank.  Of course, these need to be properly claimed for and that is where two of the recent additions to the growing ACAD membership can help, CATAX and GKA Innovation.

When you hear the words research and development the work of a Licensed Asbestos Removal contractor doesn’t immediately spring to mind but that’s where the specialists at CATAX and GKA Innovation really step up and help.  Thanks to their solid knowledge of our industry, CATAX and GKA Innovation will help ACAD members to efficiently take advantage of incentives that at first you might think don’t apply to our industry.

Ian Patrick, Associate Director of CATAX “We help uncover the hidden value in ACAD members and their clients’ business or commercial property, through Capital Allowances, Research & Development, Remediation of Contaminated Land and the Patent Box tax reliefs”.

Dr. Mo Adabi – Managing Director of GKA Innovation “Our qualifications in the field of Materials Science coupled to our industry insight in the field of handling and processing hazardous materials, including the detection, abatement, and containment of asbestos containing materials allows us to speak the same language as ACAD members.  This ultimately enables us to confidently diagnose and evaluate ACAD members’ eligibility for various available incentive schemes offered by the government, using one integrated service.  We’re proud to have successfully worked with a multitude of renowned firms in this niche field”.

ACAD will be hosting a short series of webinars where both CATAX and GKA Innovation will provide a short explanation of how they can help ACAD members with an overview of their services.

These start with GKA Innovation in two weeks’ time on Wednesday 2nd September, closely followed by CATAX one week later on Wednesday 9th September.
