IT, government support
Information about IT subsidies.
This project will subsidize part of the cost of introducing IT tools for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to improve labor productivity and promote digitization with a view to the invoice system by introducing accounting software, order and settlement software, EC software, PCs, tablets, cash registers, ticketing machines, etc.
With the start of the invoice system in October 2023 and the start of the Electronic Bookkeeping Act in January 2024, I think this is a government subsidy to ensure that IT will be widely adopted by then.
This section is only for small and medium enterprises.
(1) Expenses eligible for subsidy include
(i)Software, options and services: Installation costs, up to 2 years for subscriptions
(ii)Hardware: Hardware purchase costs for PCs, tablets, printers, scanners, and multifunction devices provided by the IT introduction support provider
POS cash registers, mobile POS cash registers, and launch machines, and registered with the secretariat in advance
Therefore, if you purchase something that is not provided by the IT introduction support project, it is not eligible for the subsidy.

Software, installation-related expenses, hardware purchase expenses: 3/4 for expenses between 50,000 yen and 500,000 yen, and 2/3 for expenses between 500,000 yen and 3.5 million yen
PCs, tablets, etc.: 100,000 yen or less, 1/2
Cash registers/launch machines: ¥200,000 or less, 1/2
