Orkney Islands Council can assist local business by providing information and assistance through the Business Gateway and where eligible by accessing Economic Development Grant Schemes.
Grant assistance is provided under set policies and guidelines which specify what kinds of projects are eligible and how much assistance is given, as a proportion of the project cost.
Articles in this section cover our business development services in detail and provide links to application forms and guidance notes where appropriate. The guidelines do not cover every single type of project, and if it is unclear how the guidelines apply to your project, you should consult the Business Gateway by telephone on 01856886666.
All Business Development pages can be accessed from the 'More pages in this section' menu.
