We love a new government scheme to help small business and we have a new one for you today, recently launched by the government to help businesses have a better impact online.

Help to Grow Digital’s ‘Wave 1’ allows businesses to identify their digital technology needs, assess technology purchasing options and implement those technologies into their day-to-day life.

The three technologies offered now are Accounting, Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and E-commerce. Three tools that could be really useful for many businesses.

The government has offered to pay for 50% off the price of technology packages in these categories. To qualify, your business has to employ more than 5 and less than 245 people, be registered at Companies House and have been trading for over a year. The government says the discounts will be available on packages that’ll help businesses:

  • Build customer relationships and increase sales
  • Make the most of selling online
  • Manage their accounts and finances digitally

We are always happy to discuss any initiatives and ways to support your business, please contact your local AIMS accountant to find out more information.
