What is the Trading Online Voucher?
The Trading Online Voucher scheme is a government initiative, funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and the Environment (DCCAE). The scheme is aimed at established small 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 voucher is a financial incentive to small businesses to develop or enhance their ability to trade online.
How do I apply for the Trading Online Voucher?
To apply for the TOV grant, first you will need to meet their criteria. You will be required to attend a webinar hosted by your local enterprise office. After you have completed the webinar, you will need to get 3 quotes for the trading online voucher. Once you have your TOV quotes, you can fill out the application form and wait to get approved to start your web development project.
Don’t worry, instabrand will guide you through the Trading Online Voucher application and ensure that your project will be approved by the Local Enterprise Office.
