Grants Available for your Website and IT Costs

Read on here to learn about the government initiatives available to you to help with the costs of website design, setting up an online shop and IT consultation.

Your local enterprise office (LEO) wants you and your business to succeed and as such offers grants and initiatives to this effect.  One such grant is the Online Trading Voucher. This allows successful applicants to recoup a maximum of €2,500 or up to half of the costs (you will be awarded the lesser of the two amounts if successful) of getting an online shop built or the cost of implementing an online shop into your existing website. If you are not necessarily looking to sell products, this online or eCommerce element can be used for clients to pay for your services via your website.


We at Ireland Website Design have worked with many clients who have availed of this grant and as such are accustomed to the process and how the application form works. For example, as part of your website build your budget may include a set amount for Google Ads and the budget can even put a sum towards the development of an app for your business. Be sure to read through the parameters of this grant fully to really reap the potential of what is available to you.


The LEO network is conscious of the amount of online shopping that happens with Irish consumers and hopes to empower the Irish business owner to capitalise on this and encourage online shopping within Ireland instead of solely abroad. Some of them require that your business is in operation for over one year and has a set amount of employees, but you should check the individual requirements with your local enterprise office to assess your liability.


Should you be successful in your application for the grant, Ireland Website Design work with you every step of the way to ensure that your project is actioned and completed as best as possible and to the highest of standards. We work alongside our clients’ vision and fuse our technical and professional skills with your passion to drive sales to your business via the world wide web and tap into the veritable Irish shopping market (said market which arguably spurred the Online Trading Voucher into existence).
