Singapore Website Design- Grants
If you run a business in Singapore, you may be eligible for a government grant for engaging website design services.
The Productivity & Innovation Credit or PIC Scheme was introduced by the Singapore Government in 2010 to encourage businesses in Singapore to improve their productivity and innovate their business processes. The main benefit of the PIC scheme is up to 400% tax deductions or 60% cash pay-outs for investments made in any of the six qualifying activities.
One of the six qualifying activities is investments in IT and automation equipment, which includes website design, web server rentals and certain web related services.
Other than purchasing the relevant equipment or service, businesses are also required to be employing at least three local employees in order to be eligible for the PIC government grant. Naturally, many Singapore companies would want to engage services such as corporate website design for the sole purpose of claiming the PIC grant.
However, this is highly discouraged, as all applications are screened on a case-by-case basis to ensure a genuine business interest and demonstrate significant improvement in business processes. For example, the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS), which administers the PIC grant, might require an applicant company to state how the solution purchased would improve the company operations.

Moreover, you will also be able to easily view all your contact messages in a Database table.
Another important feature is our mobile friendly website design. With mobile traffic increasing in recent years, it is imperative for Singapore companies to have mobile responsive websites. However, many companies still maintain old website designs, which tend to be messy and have small fonts when viewing in mobile devices.
