VIC Small Business Digital Adaptation Program

Digital Charge

Software Boost For Small Businesses

Applications for the second round of the Small Business Digital Adaptation Program will close on 5 December 2021.

Thousands of small businesses around Victoria will have the chance to improve their online presence and arm themselves with more digital skills, with the Small Business Digital Adaptation Program reopening for applications.

The program provides $1,200 rebates so small businesses can access a range of digital business tools to make improvements to things like websites, online marketing tools, cash flow services, jobs and project management and stocktake systems.

The program has been extended to offer additional support to Victorian businesses during the current lockdown and beyond. As part of the program, software providers will give businesses access to product-specific support and training during the trial period.

Once the trial period has finished, businesses can then use one or more of the digital products listed as part of the program and apply for a rebate of up to $1,200, while continuing to receive product support and advice.

Software applications offered by Mr Yum, Square, Shopify, MYOB, XERO and Squarespace are some of the resources on offer as part of the program. Businesses will also be able to participate in free digital workshops offered through Small Business Victoria.

The first round of the program was launched in November 2020 and more than 8,000 successful applications were received.
