Government Helping Small Businesses to Grow with Tech Support and Software

The Government is releasing a digital scheme to help support small businesses with discounted software and free advice.

 

Take a look at what the Government Help to Grow Digital Scheme is and what it has to offer.

What is the New Government Scheme?

 

The government’s help to grow digital scheme, which has been open for applications since the 20th of January, is designed to help smaller businesses with digital technologies so they can grow.

With this scheme, eligible businesses will be able to receive discounts of up to £5000 off retail prices of digital accounting and CRM software from leading technology suppliers.  This kind of software will help businesses to manage their finances and build better relationships with customers, ultimately, improving and growing the business itself.

Also with this scheme, businesses can access specialised support and advice on which digital technologies would be best for helping them boost productivity.

Is my Business Eligible for the Help to Grow: Digital Scheme?

 

For a business to be eligible for the Government’s new scheme, they must meet all 4 of the following criteria:

– The business must be based in the United Kingdom, registered with Companies House or be a registered society on the Financial Conduct Authorities Mutuals Register.

– The business must be employing between 5 and 249 people.

– The business must have been actively trading for over 12 months, and have an incorporation date of at least 365 days prior to application.

– The business must be purchasing the approved software for the first time.

 

Additional Information

 

Eligible businesses will receive one financial discount onwards the purchase of one approved software product up to a maximum of £5000 (not including VAT) in Customer Relationship Management and Digital Accounting software product categories.

Additional software product categories will be available with the discount soon, which includes e-Commerce software.

The financial discount covers 12 months worth of approved software product core costs, exclusive of VAT.
