Overview: The Irish Government has increased funding for its Trading Online Voucher Scheme, which allows businesses to obtain a grant of €2,500 to cover 90 percent of the cost of an online initiative for the business.

Businesses will be allowed to apply for a second voucher of up to €2,500 where they have successfully used their first voucher. The voucher can be used for adding payment facilities, booking systems, developing new apps for customers, or subscriptions to low-cost online retailing platform solutions.

An additional €3.3 million is being provided to the scheme.
