Trading Online Voucher Scheme From Your LEO 2022 Update – The Trading Online Voucher Scheme from Ireland Local Enterprise Offices (LEO) became a smash hit immediately after the Global COVID 19 pandemic hit in 2020. With lockdowns shuttering once thriving enterprises, these business sought as much help as they could find from government sources.
Though the Trading Online Voucher was available previously from the LEO, its pre-pandemic form only offered 50% of the project total cost up to a value of €2,500. In April 2020 this was increased to a whopping 90% of the project total cost but the maximum allowed payment remained capped at €2,500. Needless to say this great scheme was taken up by many SME’s who had not previously considered selling online through their website.
January 2021 saw the percentage payment once again dropped back dow to its pre-pandemic figure of %50 of the total project, to avail of this full 50% you would once again need to have a website build of €5,000. While many business missed out on the full 90% pandemic amount they were still able to qualify for the lesser amount.
Trading Online Voucher Scheme From Your LEO 2022 Update
2022 has seen no further changes to the scheme as it continues to operate as it once had pre-pandemic. Business who wish to avail of the scheme can still do so should they fulfil the basic requirements of the scheme. At the time of writing (March 2022) these are:
- Vouchers will be available to a maximum value of €2,500 or 50% of eligible expenditure (net of VAT)
- Voucher approval must be gained prior to incurring any expense
- ‘Own Labour’ is not an eligible expense
- Only ‘third-party’ costs will be considered
- All ‘third party’/supplier Invoices must contain comprehensive business details, incl. Tax & Business registration information
According to the Louth LEO Website it is still a requirement to attend a “Trading Online Workshop” before submitting your application to them.
