The government’s Help to Grow: Digital scheme has officially launched. This is designed to support small businesses to adopt new technology, which can help your business cut costs, save time, reach new customers and be more competitive.
Knowing what software to use and how to integrate it into your business can be challenging, so the Help to Grow website offers free practical, specialised support and advice about digital technologies that can boost growth and productivity.
Eligible businesses can also apply for discounts of up to £5,000 off the retail price of approved software that will help them to manage their finances and build customer relationships. To qualify, businesses can be from any sector, but must:
- have a registered office in the UK,
- have been actively trading for 12 months,
- have between 5 and 249 employees,
- be purchasing the approved software for the first time.
