The Growth Voucher Scheme

I just wanted to let you know about a great way for you to get some help with the growth of your business. The Government has recently introduced a Growth Voucher scheme which you can use, and I don’t want you to miss this great opportunity.  Here is some information about the scheme:

Did you know that you can claim up to £2,000 towards the cost of strategic business advice on:

Finance and cash flow
Recruiting and developing staff
Improving leadership and management skills
Marketing, attracting and keeping customers
Making the most of digital technology
… through the Government’s Growth Voucher Scheme?

The Growth Voucher programme is available to small businesses in England who are actively selling goods and/or services, have a turnover of less than £35m, own 75% or more of their business and have 250 employees or less.

If this sounds like something that you would be interested in, give me a call and we’ll see what we can do to help you.

Growth Vouchers are aimed at providing specific advice and help on the correct strategic direction for your business.

How the Growth Voucher Programme works
There are around six stages in the Growth Voucher programme, depending on whether or not participants have been allocated a voucher.

Stage 1 is where you, as a small business owner apply to join the programme on the gov.uk website.

Stage 2 will involve carrying out an assessment of your strategic advice needs, either by meeting an adviser face-to-face or by completing an online questionnaire.

Stage 3: After completing the assessment, you will be given a suggestion about which area of strategic advice would be the most appropriate.

Stage 4: Applicants will then be advised to find a Growth Voucher adviser on the Enterprise Nation Marketplace.

Stage 5: At this stage, you might get in touch with approved growth voucher advisors such as Wallshire via the Marketplace. Vouchers will cover up to half of the cost of paying for strategic advice up to a maximum of £2,000 (non-inclusive of VAT).

Stage 6: After receiving and paying for the advice, you then submit a claim for the subsidy.

Whether you carry out the initial assessment face-to-face or online and whether you receive a voucher or not will be decided at random. No assessment about the viability of the business will be made. This is to ensure that a wide range of small businesses receive a voucher and that the impact of advice can be measured effectively.
