Another support scheme being promoted by the Local Enterprise Offices is the Business Expansion Grant.

  • A business employing up to 10 employees.
  • A Manufacturing or Internationally traded service business.

The Details

The maximum Business Expansion Grant payable is 50% of the investment or €150,000 whichever is the lesser. Grants over €80,000 and up to €150,000 are the exception and will only apply in the case of projects that clearly demonstrate a potential to graduate to Enterprise Ireland and/or to export internationally. Subject to the 50% limit a maximum grant of €15,000 per full time job created shall apply in respect of any employment support granted.


What are the Benefits of the Grant?

Business Expansion Grants and Priming Grants are a fantastic way for eligible companies to raise finance to assist with the future growth of their business. There are always hoops to jump through in order to access such funding, as if there wasn’t everyone would be submitting all types of applications making the process cumbersome all round.
