The Small Business Digital Adaptation Program supports sole traders, micro businesses and small businesses to access digital products, tools and training to help build digital capability in their day-to-day operations.

Small business owners can access accounting software, tools to build or upgrade their websites, and to improve online marketing and social media. There are tools to help you streamline your  processes to manage stock and other business needs, and to improve your customer experience.

Businesses can trial digital products from a range of suppliers, who have partnered with the Victorian Government.

Businesses can use a new, approved product, upgrade an existing approved product, or re-subscribe to an approved product that expired more than 12 months ago.

Once businesses have bought and begun using  an approved product or products, they can apply for a rebate of $1200 to give them 12 months’ access to the product/s. Businesses will need to pay the ongoing costs after 12 months.

The program also offers free digital adaptation training and workshops to help businesses use the online tools.

Spaces for the Small Business Digital Adaptation Program are limited.
