Called 'Digital Boost' it provides a grant of up to £25,000 towards the costs of various digitalisation projects, which are intended to either reduce costs or increase revenue / margin. In terms of who can apply, the main criteria is that you must meet the 'European definition' of an SME (in essence fewer than 250 employees, annual turnover <50m euro and/or annual balance sheet total <43m euro) and you must have been trading for six months.
Full details, including exact eligibility requirements for the business, project and expenditure can be found on the website at: www.digitalboostdevelopmentgrant.co.uk
