Funding help to get your Irish business online

The Trading Online Voucher Scheme is basically to help businesses to start trading online, that previously didn’t (or didn’t have to). The voucher helps small businesses to start or improve their ability to trade online. The funding covers costs for this up to the value of €2,500 (ex VAT). You pay the €2,500 and provide the relevant paperwork and receipts and you will receive 90% back. So, for what would have been a €2,500 investment, you now only invest €250!
