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.
