How much does SOLIDWORKS cost to buy in the UK?
The best SOLIDWORKS software package for you will be influenced by your industry, the design work you do, your budget, future plans, and whether you choose to own or rent the software.
To give you a rough idea, SOLIDWORKS Standard can be rented from as little as £2,450 + VAT per year, and you could even qualify for up to 5 free SOLIDWORKS licenses as part of our Start ups and Entrepreneurs scheme!
You may want to complete an official SOLIDWORKS training course and you can take out a yearly subscription contract that adds full technical support from our award winning team, regular software updates and access to a number of other benefits only available to subscription customers. Perhaps you could qualify for a SOLIDWORKS research license, in which case you’ll be entitled to 50% off the cost vs. the commercial equivalent.
As you can see there’s no “one-size-fits-all” solution, so we recommend getting in touch with us to get a personalised quote tailored to your requirements.
Can I finance my purchase?
We realise that investment in software can be challenging for some small businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs, that’s why we offer attractive financing options where you could (subject to acceptance) purchase SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Standard for as little as £40 per week.
We have access to a number of government funding schemes that can see huge reductions of not only the software cost, but also related hardware and more. Many of our customers have already taken advantage of funding and you too could be eligible.
Claim R&D Tax Credits through our partner, ABGI.
Introduced to encourage investment in Research and Development, the UK Government’s R&D Tax Credits scheme has been around since 2000 and last year over 39,000 UK companies claimed almost £3.5bn in tax relief.
If you’re a Limited Company you may qualify for R&D tax relief to reduce your tax bill or you may be able to claim payable cash credits as a proportion of your R&D expenditure.
HMRC’s guidance on claiming R&D Tax Credits is several hundred pages long, but our friends at ABGI will simplify the process for you, hopefully cutting the cost of SOLIDWORKS at the same time.
