TRADING ONLINE VOUCHERS
The Trading Online Voucher Scheme is just one of many ways in which the Irish Government has put its National Digital Strategy into action and through which it helps secure a place for Irish business on the world web. The Trading Online Voucher Scheme offers entrepreneurs and their fledgling businesses financial assistance as well as training and advice to ensure the business’ online trading turns into a lucrative endeavour. Its purpose is to assist small businesses with up to ten employees to broaden their online trade, increase their sales, and spread to new markets. Your LEO may grant you up to €2,500 as long as your business funds 50% of the cost. This is a rare opportunity and it should be on your radar.
