Feedback from some of my clients

I have already recommended another business to contact Bulletpoint. They have been professional and proactive; I'm always a bit slow in putting information together and they've been good in following that up with me, and they demonstrate a good understanding of research and development. They have a good amount of technical knowledge and Ben was very good to deal with; he was patient and persistent in following up matters and information with me but he didn't do that in a harassing way. I didn't feel overly pressured by him. We won't however be using their services again as we won't be putting in another R&D claim.

The guy who we dealt with in regards to the R&D claim was good to work with; he was very concise, clear and helped us work out what we needed to pull out of our system. When doing an R&D claim you have to go through all types of paperwork such as what projects you've done and verification is required from your accountant for any claims. Ben was clear with his instructions of what information we needed. He made the process easy for us because in the beginning we both felt a little daunted due to the amount of information we needed to get. He was very patient and understanding; after we spoke to him we simply felt reassured about everything. He was a nice, regular guy to deal with.

I would definitely recommend Bulletpoint. In regards to my recent experience with them, they were reliable and they were overall, fine to deal with. They were reliable in helping us work out our financials and with reporting. They were efficient in providing us with feedback and information on what they needed from us and they followed through with the work. They helped us identify our areas of expertise and that was probably one of their main strengths. They helped us distinguish between what's real R&D and what is not.

I love government grants!
No one knows more about them than me

Despite the Government’s efforts to cut red tape, grants still take a long time to write and prepare.
They can also be pretty complex.
There is also a big difference between submitting an application and submitting a winning application.

I am to simplify the grant application process so that you can concentrate on running your business

We assist with completing the AusIndustry Activity Registration and the ATO R&D Tax Incentive Schdedule 2018

Why does the government support R&D?

The objectives of the R&D Tax Incentive program are to:

  • Boost Competitiveness and improve productivity across the Australian economy

  • Provide businesses with more predictable, less complex support

  • Improve the ability for smaller firms to engage in research and development incentive.

Ben Cusack - Founder of Bulletpoint

I started Bulletpoint as I love working with small business and helping them grow.
I noticed how Government Grants could transform good businesses into great businesses. So I started to apply my management consulting experience into identifying how to successfully win grants for organisations.

How do I help businesses?

I tell you plain and simply what grants are available to you at no cost. 

Most of the time I tell potential clients not to bother applying for grants.

If I recommend a grant to you, I also tell you all the reasons why you would and wouldn't get it. So you can make an informed decision.

If you need help with the writing of the grant then I can make the process much easier and increase your chances of getting funded.
