Quiff Consultancy started trading in July 2008. It was set up by Mark Howard, an accountant with over 28 years experience; the last 21 specialising in corporate finance. It was formed with the expressed aim of assisting businesses to access the best support possible when preparing cases for funding. To date, the main specialism of the business has been the preparation of robust business plans and financial forecasts and the subsequent completion of grant applications for new and growing businesses. These businesses have been both indigenous to Wales and companies looking to locate here.
Since we started trading we have helped our clients access in excess of £38m of grant support and this has allowed them to leverage in additional commercial funding of over £78m. These individual grants have varied in size from £30k to £3.8m.

We work closely with the Welsh Government to ensure its officers are supplied with all the relevant information they require to make a positive investment decision.
Our aim is to maximise the chances of success for each of our clients and our 100% record to date is testament to that approach.
We are not ashamed to say that we are selective about the clients we take on. We have to present the best possible case for your business and we can only do that if we believe your project will be a success. That's not to say that we only take on straightforward applications. On the contrary, sometimes the most challenging projects produce the greatest rewards - it's just important that they are presented in the most favourable light.
We are always up front when it comes to fees and that's why it's right here on the front page. We believe that as advisers we should be remunerated on success. Accordingly, once we have fully scoped your project and received outline go-ahead from the Welsh Government to submit a detailed application we will take it forward on a no-win, no-fee basis.
Our fee is also agreed in advance so there are absolutely no surprises. It will be based on a small percentage of the funds raised and will always be extremely competitive.
All that we ask is that, when we are successful, our fee is settled as promptly as possible.
