Ireland’s local enterprise boards have for years been hugely supportive of business in a wide range of areas. For businesses looking to get online their eCommerce voucher which matched any spend up to €2500 has been very popular for many years.
However, if you didn’t want to sell online there were no other options available but this has changed significantly in recent months. Ther is now an unbeatable trading online voucher available that has 2 vouchers available to match up to 90% of your spend up to €2500. In effect, this means that once you fill out the paperwork attend a short online web seminar on how to fill out these forms, get three quotes you are in a position to get online for as good as free.
- For applications received after 7th April 2020, applicants are eligible to claim up to 90% of funding (up from 50%) up to a maximum of €2500
- It is now possible for businesses to claim two Trading Online Vouchers (previously it was capped at one TOV per business)
The added bonus is the webinar as the forms are detailed and the webinar helps people to understand how to fill them out. It is also compulsory to do said Webinar.
I am not sure how many vouchers there are available but savvy cork business owners are snapping them up to both create new sites and upgrade existing ones.
