Technology Voucher Programme TVP

Technology Voucher Programme aims to subsidise local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in using technological services and solutions to improve productivity, or upgrade or transform their business processes. The programme will be implemented on a pilot basis for an initial period of three years from November 2016 with HK$500 million from the Innovation and Technology Fund.

Who are eligible to apply?

An enterprise will be eligible to apply if:

  1. it is registered in Hong Kong under the Business Registration Ordinance (BRO) (Cap. 310);
  2. it has at least one year of substantive business operation in Hong Kong which is related to the project under application at the time of application; and
  3. it fulfills the Government’s definition of SMEs, i.e. manufacturing businesses employing fewer than 100 persons in Hong Kong; or non-manufacturing businesses employing fewer than 50 persons in Hong Kong.

What kind of projects will be funded by Technology Voucher Programme?

Technology Voucher Programme supports projects in the form of technological services and solutions which could improve productivity, or upgrade or transform the business processes of the applicant enterprise. A list of typical technological services and/or solutions covered by Technology Voucher Programme  is at Annex B of the Guidance Notes for Applications. Applicant enterprises are welcome to propose other technological services and solutions which could achieve the objectives of Technology Voucher Programme . For funding support under Technology Voucher Programme, prior approval must be obtained before project commencement.

 

How can I use the funds from Technology Voucher Programme ?

The approved funding from Technology Voucher Programme  can be used to cover the following:

  1. Technology Consultancy – the applicant enterprise may engage a technology consultant to provide external consultancy for conducting the project under application. The consultant must be a local organization/research institution, or a company/organisation registered in Hong Kong under the BRO.
  2. Purchase, rental or subscription of customised equipment/hardware, software and technological services or solutions that form an essential part of the project.
  3. Purchase, rental or subscription of off-the-shelf/readily available equipment/hardware, software and technological services or solutions that form an essential part of the project. In general, the costs of such equipment/ hardware/ software/ services or solutions should constitute no more than 50% of the project cost.
  4. Project auditing for projects with approved funding exceeding $50,000. The maximum audit fee to be counted towards the total project cost is $3,000.

Normal business operating costs will not be funded under Technology Voucher Programme .

What is the funding amount?

Funding up to $200,000 for each eligible enterprise will be provided on a 2:1 matching basis. The applicant enterprise must contribute no less than one third of the total approved project cost in cash. Subject to the cumulative funding ceiling of $200,000, up to three projects from an enterprise may be approved. To ensure proper focus on project implementation, an enterprise is not allowed to undertake more than one Technology Voucher Programme project at the same time. Expenditure items under an approved Technology Voucher Programme project shall not receive funding support from other local public funding sources.

Is there any restriction on the project duration?

Each project should normally be completed within 12 months.

What is the vetting mechanism ?

Upon receipt of an application, ITC will check its eligibility and conduct a preliminary screening. ITC may also seek clarification or supplementary information from the applicant enterprise if necessary. Eligible applications will be considered by the Technology Voucher Programme Committee while ineligible applications will be returned to the applicant enterprise. Applications supported by the Committee will be submitted to the Commissioner for Innovation and Technology (CIT) for approval of funding.
