UNW news /  26 January 2022

As of the 20th of January 2022, eligible businesses are invited to apply for the UK government’s Help to Grow: Digital scheme to gain access to discounts of up to £5,000 on approved Digital Accounting and Customer Relations Management (CRM) software.

An online platform has also been launched, providing guidance on how to choose the best ways to improve and grow. This new scheme is offered alongside last year’s Help to Grow: Management and is designed to help SMEs embrace digital technology in order to scale up their ability to manage finances and talk to customers.

To be eligible for Help to Grow: Digital, you must:

  • be a business based in the United Kingdom registered with Companies House or be a registered society on the Financial Conduct Authorities Mutuals Register;
  • employ between 5 and 249 people;
  • have been actively trading for over 12 months, and have an incorporation date of at least 365 days prior to application;
  • be purchasing the approved software for the first time.
