Having an online presence is essential in modern business. Starting your online business strategy can be worrisome because of the huge sum of finances required to get things such as a new website done. But now there's great news! To help startups and established businesses step-up and create their presence online, the Government of Ireland together with the Local Enterprise Office has begun a new Trading Online Voucher Scheme or TOV Voucher as it's also known is a grant of up to €2500 that can easily enable you to take your business up to the next level. Those who have received a voucher can now apply for a second, bring the total available to €5000. With the TOV Voucher, you can trade more online, boost sales, and reach new markets. Also with covid and lockdowns in mind, ensuring your business can trade online is now more important than ever. The scheme has been funded by the Department of National Digital Strategy and provided by the Local Enterprise Offices (LEO).
The LEO Trading Online Voucher offers small businesses financial assistance of up to €2500 or 90% of the total costs of the business, whichever is lower. This grant can easily enable you to grow your business online and take opportunities that will help the overall performance of your business. Not only does this scheme offer you financial assistance, but you can also train and get advice on the best ways to improve your business. By equipping yourself with the right information you'll know that the action you take will work towards growing and improving your business.
Local Enterprise Offices Training sessions can help you assess what kind of digital marketing services are necessary for you to optimize your business. Moreover, this isn’t limited to newcomers to the market. Businesses that have previously opted for the LEO-online voucher can do so again and apply for a second time to help their business.
