What Are Trading Online Vouchers (TOVs)?

Background

The Trading Online Voucher Scheme was introduced several years ago by the government via the Local Enterprise Office to incentivise businesses to sell their products online via an online shop.

The TOV scheme really took off for e-commerce websites at the start of Covid in 2020 when businesses were forced to shut their shop doors and the only way to sell was by having an e-commerce website to sell their products online.

The Trading Online Vouchers can be used for any of the following:

  • Upgrade or development of an e-commerce website
