Back to Work Enterprise Allowance


You may qualify for a Back to Work Enterprise Allowance (BTWEA) if you are setting up as self-employed in a business that has been approved in advance in writing by a DSP case officer or Local Development Company (LDC)

In addition to income support (your weekly payment), you can also get financial support with the costs of setting up your business. These supports are provided under a scheme called the Enterprise Support Grant (ESG). (The ESG replaced the Technical Assistance and Training Scheme (TATS) from 16 April 2014.) You can only get the ESG if you have been approved for the Back to Work Enterprise Allowance. The business plan you submit as part of your application for the scheme must set out the rationale and requirement for financial support. The ESG can pay a total of €2,500 in any 24-month period (The ESG is paid to people getting the Short-Term Enterprise Allowance on a pro-rata basis). You must be able to make a matching contribution of at least 20% to access grant support. You need to provide documentary evidence of the costs.

A grant of up €500 is available for Website registration, related services and production
( subject to a 20% contribution )
