In the 2013 budget, Chancellor, George Osborne announced the introduction of £30m worth of Growth Vouchers for small businesses. The growth voucher programme will deliver subsidies to help businesses access the advice they need to help them grow.
The majority of small businesses that participate in this programme will be allocated vouchers (up to £2,000). These funds are to be spent (matched with their own funds) on strategic advice from suppliers in the private sector.
As part of the ICAEW BAS scheme, Harris & Co accountants Northampton are eligible to accept growth vouchers as part-payment from small businesses for strategic advice
