What Government support is available for fintech affected by COVID-19?
If your business is involved in the financial industry, there are a variety of financing options available to support you. For example, the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) and the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) were designed to help businesses that were losing revenue and suffering from cashflow disruptions, however, they closed to new applicants in March 2021. If you availed of either scheme, please contact our team of accountants and we can help you plan and prepare for your future loan repayments.
There is also a Covid Corporate Financing Facility (CCFF) available, however, this is designed specifically for larger businesses. The scheme allows the Bank of England to purchase short term debt from businesses, with terms that are similar to those given before the pandemic. In addition, government support measures are available such as the job retention scheme and VAT payment deferrals.

What key tax issues should Fintechs consider?
The tax compliance issues faced by your sector will depend on the stage of your business growth, your level of profitability and the type of service you provide. For businesses within the start-up stage or those which are making a loss, an accountant will focus on preserving cash through research and development tax claims and a thorough audit of payroll and VAT taxes.
For firms that have been operating successfully for a number of years, generally, the insights from your accountant will shift towards tax risk management and compliance. For firms that have experienced rapid growth, you could be vulnerable to tax risks, however experienced accountants will ensure the controls and processes are in place for the successful management of compliance from an early stage.
The main tax issues firms will need to consider for their sector are:
- Research and development tax relief
- International tax
- VAT recovery
- Profit fragmentation
- Transfer pricing
Whatever stage your business is at, an accountant could provide the insights needed to ensure you access the finance required to grow. As a client of our practice, we can conduct a thorough audit of your financial data, so that risks are managed and mitigated with tax opportunities fully explored by our advisers.
