  • Digital marketing costs, such as web design and development, online promotional activities, business logo designs etc.
  • Costs associated with staff training, to improve skill levels, in order to introduce the proposed developments into the business
  • Internal building refurbishments (Shop fittings are not eligible)

  • Costs to support energy efficiency improvements
  • Costs associated with specialist advice to support the business
