The government’s Help to Grow: Digital scheme – designed to support smaller businesses in adopting digital technologies so they can grow – opened for applications on 20th January.
Under the scheme, eligible businesses can now receive discounts of up to £5,000 off the retail price of approved Digital Accounting and CRM software from leading technology suppliers. This software will help them to effectively manage their finances and build customer relationships.
From today, businesses can also access practical, specialised support and advice on how to choose the right digital technologies to boost their growth and productivity through a new online platform.
To qualify for the financial discount through Help to Grow: Digital, businesses can be from any business sector, but must meet a set of criteria.
Councils are encouraged to share details of this scheme with businesses in their area.
