Detailed programme description


  • The Upgrade Grant can partly be used in conjunction with the CIP.

  • Beneficiaries have the option of using it towards funding their own contribution towards CIP. (Please refer to the CIP guidelines for details).

  • Companies that have existing loans from any financial institution to fund expenditure for purposes that would have qualified under the Upgrade Grant facility will be able to utilise their Upgrade Grant to settle or partially settle these loans.

  • Other IDC Facilities

Detailed programme description1


  • An Interest Subsidy equal to the ruling prime interest rate will be made available to participating companies.

  • The Interest Subsidy may not exceed 50% of the Benefit Ceiling.

  • The operations of the company applying must be classifiable as manufacturer (SIC code 3) in terms of the ‘Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities’ or a designer.
