Mark Frost

R&D Incentives Partner – Cooper Parry

Mark helps companies claim Research and Development (R&D) financial incentives from the government. Companies don’t need to be setting the world alight to claim these incentives, you know?

You could just be trying to do something a bit different with science or technology, such as developing new or improving existing products or processes. And you don’t even have to succeed! It’s Mark’s job to help you understand the potential and breadth of these generous incentives for your organisation.
