Today I’m with Steve Brooks of CATAX. Steve please can you introduce yourself…

‘Hi everyone, I’m Steve Brooks & I help organisations make cash through claiming tax back on the money they invest in innovation’.

Please let me explain…

Research and Development (R&D) tax relief is awarded to organisations that invest in innovation. This innovation can be in the form of developing new systems, processes, products, materials, devices, or any changes to the way your business works.

The chances are your organisation is doing R&D without you even knowing – it’s not just for people in white lab coats. Our team are experts & will determine if your activities are eligible for tax relief and if so, we’ll get you the best possible return.

Steve and his team have helped loads of organisations claim back £1,000’s in unclaimed R&D tax relief. Why not give him a call on 07815 715751 and book in your free assessment.

Although Steve doesn’t print loads of documents, those he needs to print are critical to his business & clients. So when his printer packed up (after spending £70 on replacement cartridges) he was left high & dry with no support and an unexpected cost to replace it.

Steve asked if we could help….

After assessing his requirements. Our home printing solution saves Steve 50% against his previous costs & smooths out his cash flow (with a low monthly fee of just £11.99). Giving Steve certainty that his total printing costs are covered. Even replacing his printer in the future if we have too.

And as Steve works from home, he has the extra benefit of being able to use the printer for personal things too (as no extra charge). I know Steve loves to holiday, and I’ve no doubt he’ll be constantly printing holiday information and boarding passes.

Steve’s total printing volumes (including business & personal) are well within the limits of our home printing solution. Infinity. And means he can spend the £140 annual savings on a couple of extra flights to Spain.

Don’t forget to ring Steve on 07815 715751 to book a free R&D assessment. As the cash you might claim, could just pay for that dream holiday.

We’re here today at Valley Shorai Karate & Kickboxing Club in Ewood Bridge. Haslingden. Let’s go inside & see what they’re up to…

Senei Neil Holroyd runs the club & he has been involved in karate & kick boxing for nearly 30 years, running the club for 25 of them.

Sensei Neil is a 3rd Dan (3 x blackbelts) so is extremely experienced. He also has 2 experienced instructors (Claire & Sam), who are both blackbelts & going for their 2nd Dan (2 x blackbelts) later this year.

The club caters for a broad range of ages. From 5 right up to adults. And training is on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays.

Our 3 children have been involved with the club for years. Yes, it teaches them self-discipline and a life skill. But as importantly Sensei Neil makes sure everyone has fun. Making everyone return time after time.

To check which time is right for you or your children call Sensei Neil on 07717 870734, email, message them on Facebook or visit their website at

Sensei Neil also had a problem. After each session he choice top of the class and wanted to print them a picture off and put another on his picture wall. But the cost of printer cartridges meant it would cost him nearly £50 a week in replacement cartridges alone.

He asked us to help. We designed a home printing solution for him. And provided a him with a wireless multi-function printer with unlimited ink cartridges, complete with a full maintenance package, where we fix or replace it if it goes wrong. For just £11.99 a month.

Sensei Neil is saving over £30 a month and £400 a year, which is massive a small karate club. And the savings can now be used to buy some extra equipment for the students to use.

So, if your looking for an activity for you or your children to get involved with, which teaches you a life skill & is fun too, get in contact with Sensei Neil Holroyd at Valley Shorai Karate & Kickboxing Club in Ewood Bridge, Haslingden.
