If you’re thinking of starting a new business, you could be eligible for the business start-up grant. This grant can help with set up costs such as equipment, fixtures and fitting, IT hardware, specialist software, training and more.

Your business cannot have started trading to be eligible for this grant. Your business proposal must be based in Carmarthenshire and create at least one job. This can be the owner of the business. Before you make an application, please read through all the guidance in this section of our website which explains in detail the terms of the grant, eligibility criteria, what you can and cannot use the grant for and the application / claim process.

This is a discretionary grant and is awarded on a first come, first served basis. It will remain open until all funds have been fully allocated. 

 If you've already started trading and need financial help to further develop your business, you could be eligible for support from the Business growth & recovery grant.
