This guide outlines EU, UK, Scottish and local Government financial assistance available to new and existing businesses in Scotland as at October 2013. It should be noted that the Government also provides non-financial assistance to businesses, but this support is not covered in this guide.
More information on business support is available from the Business Gateway website or by calling 0845 609 6611. Businesses with high-growth potential may be eligible for additional support via the Business Gateway Growth Pipeline and ultimately Scottish Enterprise or Highlands & Islands Enterprise account management.
The funding programmes available may be subject to change. Please contact the author if you would like to update any information in this guide.
