In recent weeks, in response to Covid-19, the Irish Government announced changes to the Trading Online Vouchers to help small Irish businesses. Funding available under this Scheme has been increased from €2.3 million to €5.6 million.
The following changes were also made to the scheme;
– Requirements for co-funding in respect of applications received has been reduced from 50% to 10%.
– Businesses who have availed of a voucher under the original Scheme can also apply for a second voucher up to €2500, if they find themselves needing to upgrade their existing ecommerce capability. This second voucher will also have a requirement for co-funding of 10%.
– Drawdown of payments for new vouchers is now in two instalments (rather than in one instalment, as before).
– This new Scheme is valid until 30th September 2020.
