Growth Vouchers Can Help Your Business Development
The voucher scheme, was originally announced by the Chancellor in his 2013 Budget, with the aim of connecting businesses with trusted advisors to deliver strategic advise. The original strict requirements have been relaxed, making it much more accessible for many businesses.From Tuesday 26th August, the Government has opened up the Growth Vouchers Programme to more small businesses and encouraging them to get strategic advice to help them grow.
Benefit from advice in the following areas
Growth vouchers will be randomly awarded to businesses who would benefit from advice in any of the following areas:
- Raising Finance and managing cash flow
- Recruiting and developing your staff
- Improving leadership and management skills
- Marketing: Attracting and Keeping Customers
- Making the most of Digital technology
Businesses will be randomly chosen from those that apply, so we advise to get your applications in now!
Growth Voucher Eligibility Criteria
There is as usual criteria attached to the scheme which you need to meet. Businesses who wish to apply need to:
- Be registered in England
- Have less than 250 employees
- Be actively selling goods and/or services
- Have a turnover no greater than €50m or £45m

Growth vouchers are worth up to £2,000, but you have to match it. So for example if you pay for Blue Dolphin to deliver advice to create a new sales cheap and marketing strategy and implementation plan for £4,000, you would use £2,000 from your vouchers and £2,000 from your own money.
