Please note: Businesses involved in retail, distribution and agriculture are not eligible for assistance under this scheme. The funding is provided under the European Commission Regulation on De Minimis Aid as stated in the application for Emergency Business Solutions. The business must provide InterTradeIreland with details of all other De Minimis aid which has been granted to the business within the past three years. It should be noted that a false declaration by a business resulting in the threshold of €200,000 being exceeded could later give rise to the aid being recovered with interest.
