Welcome to my short guide to the Trading Online Voucher. This is a local government grant initiative to help small businesses acquire the ability to sell their goods and services online.
The amount the Local Enterprise Office, who administer the scheme, contribute to this grant has increased to 90% under Covid-19 business lockdown. So it’s something seriously worth considering if you have goods or services you can sell online, or if in light of Covid-19 restrictions, moving your business online looks like a worthwhile option.
Either way, I can help you achieve this! Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions.

– WHAT –
IS IT FOR
The Local Enterprise Office (LEO) Trading Online Voucher is a grant of up to €2,500 for creating or modifying a website with an e-commerce facility. In other words a shopping cart, or similar facility for selling goods, products or services. The LEO have recently increased their contribution to 90% of the Trading Online Voucher value, so you only need to find 10% of the cost.
– WHO –
Any small business can apply, as long as you have up to 10 employees, and have been trading for at least 6 months. You can only use the voucher to purchase services for an e-commerce website, in other words a website that is selling something. If you don’t have goods or services to sell online, your business won’t be eligible. The good news is that it’s a grant so you don’t have to pay the money back!
– HOW –
A few other criteria apply (as detailed on the LEO website), so if it sounds like you are eligible, you can apply for the Trading Online Voucher via your Local Enterprise Office. They will be able to give you more information on how the scheme works. In addition, you will need to get 3 quotes for the work required. I can help you with this!
