Help to Grow: Digital is a government backed, UK-wide scheme that supports eligible small businesses to choose, buy and integrate software into their business.
Software integration can help SMEs to reach more customers, streamline time-consuming tasks and free up more time to focus on core business needs. Many businesses feel that cost and knowledge are barriers to adopting new software and digital ways of working. This is how Help to Grow: Digital can help.
Through the scheme, you can access funding to help buy new software and receive a discount of up to 50% or £5,000 (excluding VAT) towards the cost. You are also offered free, impartial advice and guidance. The funding is available for approved suppliers for three software types:
