[Germany] Get up to 50% off your Odoo implementation
Benefit from the new funding program for German SMEs!

The German Ministry for Economy and Energy (BMWi) wants to incentivise and support SMEs to invest in digitization projects with a new funding program: Digital Jetzt. The program provides financial support to SMEs with grants for investments in digital technologies and related implementations.

This is the perfect opportunity to invest in a new business management tool like Odoo.

How much funding will you receive? 

The grant is awarded as a non-repayable subsidy in the form of partial financing. 
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the funding quota was lifted to 50% for all submitted applications until 30/06/2021! On top of this, you can benefit from extra % depending on the region your business is located in and your business model (more info here). 
Starting July 2021, the normal quota (between 30-50%) will be applied and can be taken advantage of until 2023!

The maximum subsidy amount: 

  • for individual companies: 50 000 €

  • for investments of companies in value chains and networks, this increases to 100 000€

The minimum amount of funding you can apply for is 17.000€.  

Who is eligible for the funding?
  • German companies from all industries (including freelance professions)

  • Companies sized between 3 to 499 employees

How does it work?

The funding for 2020 has been exhausted. The registration will be reopened on the 1st of December 2020 and will then be open to all companies on an ongoing basis. The monthly available quotas will be drawn at random from January 2021 onwards. The registrations drawn by lot can prepare and submit an application.

The process is fairly easy, you only need to provide three documents: 

  • A digitization plan (to be provided by the applicant): it should explain the investment project and the objectives to be achieved by the investment plan. 

  •  “De Minimis" declaration: The Digital Jetzt program constitutes aid under the EU rules (dealt under the “De Minimis” procedure). You will accompany your application with a declaration indicating if you’ve received other de Minimis aid during the last two and current fiscal years. You can download it here.

  • Your Odoo quotation (quote for investment): get in touch with one of our Business Advisors to discuss your Odoo project and receive your quotation. 

When your grant application is approved by the government, you can start the implementation. Simple as that!
