As part of the Government’s plan to try and rescue as many small and medium sized businesses as possible from the impact of the pandemic, they have introduced the Help To Grow: Digital Scheme.
By introducing this scheme they are hoping to encourage the growth of as many businesses as possible. In order to support businesses to invest in new technology the Help To Grow: Digital scheme is offering up to £5,000 worth of discounts for businesses to purchase new software.
Did you know, you can use this scheme to invest in your Sage 50 software?
The government has acknowledged the significance of digital software for businesses to;
- increase their sales
- cut costs
- save time
- manage their finances
- be more competitive
- be visible online
Having the right software can be a critical element of a business growth. Software automations can free up your time, so that you can concentrate on other aspects of the business. Having the most up to date software can be what makes you stand out from the crowd, eliminating inaccuracies which are caused by human error during manual processes.
With more and more businesses now having to comply with MTD and having compatible software to adhere to the rules, there has never been a better time for this scheme to be introduced.
“Companies who are proactive with the latest technology are 18% more productive”
