growth-vouchers-295The Government’s Growth Vouchers Scheme can offer funding for strategic business advice

Businesses in England can take advantage of a scheme by the Government designed to offer business advice to SMEs and entrepreneurs. Those companies based in England with less than 49 employees, that have been actively selling goods or services for at least one year, and have not paid for strategic business advice in the last three years are eligible for the vouchers. This Government programme helps small businesses get strategic business advice on finance and cash flow, recruiting and developing staff, improving leadership and management skills, marketing, attracting and keeping customers, and making the most of digital technology. Some businesses will be randomly chosen to get a voucher of up to £2,000 to help finance strategic business advice. The voucher can pay for up to half of the cost of the advice. You must pay the supplier in full after receiving the advice and then submit your claim. To find out more visit www.gov.uk/apply-growth-vouchers
