During COVID-19 our agency is functioning normally.
A professional website is an essential investment to help you attract clients and customers from around the world. For start-up companies, or businesses that don’t have the money to put into a new website, the idea of spending a few thousand euro can be anxiety-inducing.
We’re incredibly lucky to live in a country that believes in investing in small local businesses. There are two incredibly helpful grants available to help with the cost of a website: the Local Enterprise Office – Online Trading Voucher and the Social Welfare Technical Assistance and Training (TAT).
With these grants, you can get up to €2,500, or 50% of the costs, towards developing a website. We’ve been working with the LEO for many years to aid local businesses avail of these grants.
Many Local Enterprise Offices in Ireland are rewarding qualifying businesses in their area with this sort of grant.
If you’re awarded the grant, you’ll be able to receive up to €2,500 off the total cost of your website.
The objective of these grants is to maximise the online potential of Irish micro-businesses (businesses with 10 or fewer employees).
Give us a call and we’ll run through the qualification questions with you.
Get in touch with your LEO and tell them you’d like to apply:
You’ll be asked to attend a brief session outlining how to trade online.
There’s a small form to fill out and submit to the LEO and they’ll be in touch with you to let you know if you’re successful within a few weeks.
Once you’ve been approved, you can get started on your website!
The online trading voucher is open to all businesses with ten or fewer employees that intend to trade online.
You must be located and operate within the area of the Enterprise Office. You must have less than €2m in turnover and be trading for at least 6 months to qualify.
Before the application process begins you’ll need to attend an information seminar organised by your own Local Enterprise Office
You can then complete your application form which will need to be submitted to your LEO along with three different quotes for the development of the website.
You must also provide them with a reason as to why you’ve decided to go with the web designer you’ve chosen.
Do you have a project in mind? We would love to hear from you.
