SMEs are supported by part-funding expenses suffered by businesses for consultancy obtained from external consultancy service providers registered under the scheme.

The consultancy services covered by the grant are meant to primarily address services about formulating and executing the business plan and feasibility study support, including assistance with sourcing financing for a such business plan.

Consultancy services that are of a continuous or periodic nature, or related to the undertaking’s usual operating costs, such as routine tax consultancy services, regular legal services, and advertising will not be considered.

The maximum grant is capped at €4,000, with part-financing eligible expenditure up to 80%.

The deadline for this scheme is on the 28th of April 2023.
