Please note the following change in eligibility criteria applying to Intertrade Ireland’s Brexit Advisory Service/Supports – they have expanded the range of eligible businesses that qualify for their €2,000 Brexit Voucher. The previous restriction that Brexit Vouchers would only be available to manufacturing and internationally traded services has now been removed, meaning that many other service type businesses including retail should qualify for Brexit support/voucher.
InterTrade Ireland has updated its website: http://www.intertradeireland.com/brexit/vouchers/
The revised eligibility criteria include:
- Applications must be from an SME (250 employees or less) and Turnover ≤ €50m;
- The business must have a satisfactory trading record (ITI reserves the right to request submission of Financial Accounts for the business);
- The assistance requested must relate to a Brexit issue;
- Companies must submit a valid tax clearance access number along with relevant application form.
Note: There are certain exclusions in line with specific State Aid guidelines, such as primary agriculture – please contact the Brexit Team at InterTradeIreland for further information.
