HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach – 13 November 2020 – The government has launched the Technology Voucher Program (TVP) for some time, and the amount and conditions have been widened. But some companies still have difficulty in applying for TVP. The TVP scheme is a subsidy scheme set up using government public funds, and certain criteria are also set for approval to ensure that the scheme can be used appropriately. Therefore, from the beginning of the submission of the application documents to the successful receipt of the funding amount, one has to go through different levels which is a waste of time and energy for small and medium-sized enterprises!

There are three major difficulties in the application process:
1. Request a quotation
First, the application company needs to find at least 3 IT Vendor companies. Do not ever think it is easy to ensure that Vendor signs the “Integrity Clause” and the “Anti-Biddering Clause” when requesting quotations. In fact, they may consider that they are pacers without getting business successfully, so they are unwilling to provide quotations when the VENDOR service provider realizes the applicants are applying for TVP.

2. Submit the application form and required information
The government will require the TVP applicant company to provide company documents, such as Invoice, Audit Report, and other related documents. In addition, the government will require applicants to write a detailed report explaining what technological difficulties their company has in its operations, how technology can help their company, and so on.

3. Quality inspection
It is not easy to find a suitable supplier among many IT suppliers. Due to the uneven fees and supplier quality, if the applicant company lacks the expertise in IT, there is a high chance that the finished product will not be as expected and it is a waste of time and effort.
