Last chance to access Government’s discount digital software scheme 

1 min read

Businesses have until February 2 to take advantage of the Government’s Help to Grow: Digital scheme. 

The scheme is being phased out after that date because of low uptake, but there’s still time to make a late application. 

The Help to Grow: Digital programme is designed to give support and discounts to help SMEs find, buy and adopt digital technologies to improve productivity. 

Vouchers worth up to £5,000 are on offer to cover up to 50 per cent of the costs of buying pre-approved software. 

However with less than 1,000 vouchers redeemed so far by SMEs the Government has decided it cannot justify the continued cost of the scheme to the tax-payer. 

Small businesses who would like to know more about Help to Grow: Digital should follow this link.
