You may have already heard of the Trading Online Voucher Scheme being offered by the LEO (Local Enterprise Office).
What you may not know is that there have been some recent changes which may be very important and relevant to you.
The previous version of the scheme allowed up to €2500 with a limit of 50% of your costs. However for applications received from April 7th 2020 until September 30th 2020 you only need to co-fund 10% of the total.
This means that you can now have up to 90% of your cost covered (max €2500) for a range of digital products and services such as:
- New Websites
- Ecommerce stores
- Upgrading existing websites
- Graphic design
- Digital tools (CRM, Finance tools etc)
Even if you don’t think you have a product you can sell online there may be options for you too.
Run a service business? Maybe you need an online booking & payments system.
Want to let your potential customers find out more about the products or services you offer? Let us help you improve the customer experience on your website.
There is a digital solution for many business problems so feel free to get in touch and chat to us about how we can help you.
What is the catch?
As with any public funding there are some conditions. Businesses should fit the following profile:
- Limited or no e-commerce presence
- 10 or less employees
- Turnover less than €2m
- Applicant business must be trading for at least 6 Months
- Must apply to the LEO in the location of the business
Businesses that have already received a Trading Online Voucher can now apply for a second voucher, where upgrades are required. This was not the case before so this may work for you.
If you are confused or need help planning your application contact us and we will help you get started.
We would also be happy to provide you with a quote if needed.
