What is the Trading Online Voucher?

Grow your business online with help through the Government’s National Digital Strategy. The expanded Trading Online Voucher Scheme is designed to assist small businesses with up to 10 employees to trade more online, boost sales and reach new markets. Participating in this scheme can make the process of trading online much easier for you.

 

It focuses on costs associated with your website, including design, development, SEO, social media, hosting, management and advanced functionalities such as payment processing and booking systems. It is the single most beneficial grant available for SMEs in Ireland who are interested in improving their online presence.

Who is the grant for?

The grant is not aimed at any industry in particular. We’ve made successful applications on behalf of clients in a number of industries, including law, e-commerce, hospitality, accounting, finance, news & media, cleaning, construction, recruitment and retail.

The LEO doesn’t mind what industry you are in, just so long as the new website will improve your company’s ability to do business online. This does not necessarily mean having an online shop, it could mean you have a simple payment facility or even a booking system.
