What is the Trading Online Voucher
The Trading Online Voucher is a grant commissioned by the Local Enterprise Office to help businesses set up or improve their online presence. 50% of your web development cost will be covered under the grant up to €5,000.

What can be done to my website using the Trading Online Voucher?
The TOV grant can be used for all needed aspects of your web development and e-commerce system. 30% of the available €2,500 can be used on digital marketing. This can be spent on google ads, SEO, and any marketing content needed for the website.
The Grant also requires there to be an e-commerce system included in the new or improved website. For the service industry, a simple payment facility will suffice.
Was the Trading Online Voucher bigger?
To the dismay of many of you, the TOV actually covered 90% of your web development cost back in 2020 but changed to 50% in January 2021.
