How to Get your grant up to €5,000?

To qualify for this grant, your business must be located in a place that can be taxed by your local government. You also need to be up to date with your local tax payments.

Here’s how the grant works:

  • If your business’s local tax bill for 2023 is €10,000 or less, you’ll get a grant equal to half of that bill.
  • If your tax bill is between €10,000 and €30,000, you’ll receive a flat grant of €5,000.
  • If your tax bill exceeds €30,000, unfortunately, you won’t be eligible for this grant.


Update – Businesses in the retail and hospitality sectors are entitled to a second payment for approved businesses and a double payment for new registrations. The closing date is now 29 May 2024.
