Local Enterprise Office Grants

The Trading Online Voucher scheme funded by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment (DETE) is aimed at established micro-businesses, including sole-traders, with little or no trading online capability, operating in sectors where the market has not already compelled them to develop this capability. The scheme offers a grant of up to €2,500 (subject to matched funding) to help micro-enterprises (10 or less employees) to develop their ecommerce capability, and in turn achieve the positive impacts of online trading. Under the scheme a qualifying business may apply for funding to a maximum value of €2,500 or 50% of eligible expenditure (exclusive of VAT), whichever is the lesser.

Second vouchers: Businesses which have already received one Trading Online Voucher can now apply for a second voucher, where upgrades are required. A business cannot apply for a second voucher until they have submitted their final claim for their 1st approved voucher. A business cannot receive more than two Trading Online Vouchers, in the lifetime of its business.
