ENTERPRISE GRANTS
Sirius supports businesses in a range of ways to help them succeed. In partnership with The East Riding of Yorkshire Council and ERDF, we have access to a limited number of business development grants available to support businesses looking to invest in growing and developing.
AM I ELIGIBLE?
The grant is primarily aimed at engineering, manufacturing, business-to-business services and some online businesses.
The grant is available to both Start-Ups and Growing businesses operating in the Humber region. Your business must be a small and medium sized enterprise (SME) and have less than 250 employees worldwide, including any connected businesses.
HOW MUCH IS AVAILABLE?
The grant is £1,000 and, dependent on where your business is situated, would cover 50% or 60% of the pre VAT cost of the item. For example, for a 50% grant you would need to spend £2,000+.
WHAT CAN I SPEND IT ON?
The grant is available for expenditure which improves how your business does things or improves your competitiveness. Things which can be covered are tools and equipment, consultancy support or website development. It does not cover vehicles, any day-to-day expenses such as rent, wages, stock, consumables or anything you have already bought.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you think you may be eligible, contact Barbara or Zoe on (01482) 890146 who will discuss your application and arrange an appointment with a Business Advisor..
As part of the grant application process you will need to complete a simple business plan, outlining what you need to buy and how this will make a difference to your business. Sirius’ business advisers will help you through the process.
