The Local Enterprise Office (LEO) Online Trading voucher is available for businesses in any industry. Depending on your region, some offices specify two rules: you must be in business for at least the last year and you must be trading online, but there are ways around this restriction. Some LEOs only accept applications every two months, others certain times of the year and others will only issue funding in batches/rounds. The Ireland Website Design team can help you through this process and cut down on any unnecessary paperwork. When awarded the grant, you have the potential to receive up to €2,500 or as much as 50% off the total cost of your website (net of VAT) - whichever is the lesser.We recommend you to get in touch with us as soon as possible to discuss.

Social Welfare Web Design Grants
The Technical Assistance and Training (TAT) fund is designed to help people who are in receipt of the Short-Term Back to Work Enterprise Allowance. It helps with certain costs involved in starting a business. You do not have automatic entitlement to TAT - the assistance awarded from this fund must be approved by the jobs facilitator in your local social welfare office. Payments from the fund must be made directly to the provider of the service (or in other words the company that you decide to help you with your website needs). Your local jobs facilitator or enterprise officer can give you more information on sources of help and funding.
