Qualities of a good business/grant consultant
When looking for a consultant, here are some things you need to be on the lookout for:
Before your application is submitted, verify that it represents the true and fair picture of the state of your accounts, that you have all relevant support documentation and that no information has been downplayed or exaggerated for effect. If gross discrepancies are found in the application, not only do you risk losing out on the benefits of the scheme, but also you face the possibility of prosecution for fraud.

Common mistakes made during application
Applying without being eligible, or using fraudulent means to pass eligibility e.g. hiring employees on contractual basis prior to application and dismissing them after. Every employee in the organization must have been independently hired for mutual commercial benefit aside from the scheme.
