CaixaBank is boosting the digitisation of micro-enterprises, retailers and self-employed workers by supporting them throughout the entire digitisation process with its ‘Digital Kit’, the programme designed by the Spanish Government with NextGenerationEU, the economic recovery package to support the EU member states to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. All those interested in the programme can make the most of the digital voucher that the bank is offering, which includes the free processing of paperwork to apply for the aid and a wide range of digital solutions and tools based on the customers' needs. In addition, it is providing interest-free financing for the parts not funded by the programme (VAT).
This way, CaixaBank becomes the first financial institution to offer its customers a comprehensive service that covers the entire digitisation process of small enterprises and self-employed workers.
This marketing of digital solutions is framed within CaixaBank's commitment to supporting its customers in projects that helps improve the management, efficiency and competitiveness of their business in the current context, in which digitisation is a key tool to boost their activity.
The aim of the ‘Digital Kit’ programme, which has been funded with over €3 billion, is to boost economic productivity across Spain within the next three years through the digitisation of microenterprises, SMEs and the self-employed. Thanks to this programme, they will receive a digital voucher for an amount that varies according to the number of employees in each business. The solutions offered by CaixaBank are aimed at businesses classified as of 1-2 workers and 3-9 workers and include digital vouchers for a maximum amount of €2,000 and €6,000, respectively.
For SMEs with 10-49 workers, CaixaBank is offering a team of experts to provide advisory services, analyse their needs and support them throughout the entire process of applying for and processing the paperwork for the ‘Digital Kit’ subsidy.
