(Technology Voucher Programme)

What is TVP?

Technology Voucher Programme (TVP) aims to subsidize local entities on the use of technological services and solutions.
When using better technology, local entities can:

  • Improve productivity
  • Upgrade and/or transform business processes
  • Enhance long-term competitiveness
Tips from funding specialist:
  • The cumulative funding ceiling of HK$600,000, up to 6 projects for each eligible entity.
  • Provide funding for projects on a 3 (Government) : 1 (Entity) matching basis (Government pays for 3/4 in total, Entity pays for 1/4)
  • Each project should normally be completed within 12 months. Within 2 months after completion of the TVP projects, the applicant should submit Final Project Report, Evidence of Deliverables, Invoice/Receipt, Audited Statement of Income & Expenditure.

With effect from 14 August 2020, the restriction pertaining to related entities for the TVP has been relaxed. Related entities set up as different legal entities but having the same individual(s) holding 30% or more ownership in each of the entity, are no longer treated as one single entity for the purpose of calculating the cumulative funding amount under the TVP.
