Made at meeting: 23/10/2019 - SCR - Business Growth Board

Decision published: 06/11/2019

Decision:

A report was received to enable the Board to take a decision whether to support the proposal of a Business Investment Fund (BIF) Indigenous grant of £85,000 to an environmental print business who would like to expand and purchase new machinery.

 

The project is estimated to deliver 10 gross and 4 net additional full time equivalent (FTE) jobs, representing an LGF cost per net additional job of £20,988. The 4 net additional jobs will yield additional GVA of circa £1.4m (present value) over ten years, which equates to a return of £16.97 for every £1 of LGF investment.  The project is therefore considered to provide acceptable value for money for the BIF Indigenous investment.
