If you’re part of a small business in Queensland, it’s a good time to purchase software and get the training you need to use it.

Until 9 December, the Queensland Government is offering small businesses matched funding of up to $10,000 for hardware, software and services as part of its Small Business Digital Grants Program.

So, if you’ve been thinking about purchasing data discovery or any other business-specific software or associated training; or you need new hardware to do your business more easily and innovatively, the time is now.

What you need to know

  • You must be a Queensland-based business, with fewer than 20 employees.
  • You’ll need to show that the digital technology or service purchased and adopted will enhance the digital capabilities of your business, help you to be more competitive or employ more staff.
  • Up to 20% of your co-contribution amount can be an in-kind element for personal time spent being trained in new technologies.
  • All purchases must be completed within three months of the date of approval.
  • Applications close 9 December 2016.

Full details on eligibility, applications and reimbursement are available here.
