Sprk was founded to solve the cashflow needs of SMEs as they look to scale, grow and innovate, providing a non-dilutive source of capital. They believe in transparency, speed and certainty of finance.
Using a Sprk Advance, SMEs who are eligible for HMRC R&D tax credits in the UK can accelerate their cashflow by up to 15 months by accessing their credit when they really need it, today.
They work with their Sprk Approved Advisor network to support SMEs, providing a source of finance which has not previously been available at institutional scale.
SMEs are now able to increase the capital available for R&D by 20%, increase their net tax credit by 10% or reduce the equity capital requirements for the same amount of R&D by 18%, retaining more control of their business.
