How to Apply for Xero

The Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) supports all SMEs who want to improve their productivity using pre-approved IT solutions to upgrade business processes. PSG is a helpful tool for companies that want to kickstart their digitalisation efforts. Now that funding support has increased from 70% to 80%, more companies want to enjoy the PSG benefits.

The PSG supports a variety of approved software solutions such as software license, setup, subscription, training, and data migration. PSG supports equipment also, but the equipment support is limited to a few industries like environmental services and Food & Beverages (F&B).

The PSG was updated in April 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic in order to support businesses that use laptop and telecommuting tools for facilitating business plans.

FAQS for PSG – Xero Accounting Solution

Can I approach any vendor in the market for PSG application?

No. You should apply for PSG only with IMDA pre-approved vendors. Timcole is one of the IMDA pre-approved vendors.

Can you help my company to customise a package with other bundled items?

We are aware that every business has unique needs. However, PSG supports only pre-approved packages. Notwithstanding, we have a variety of packages you can select from. You’ll certainly find a package that suits your needs from our package collections.

What benefits will we enjoy if we buy from you instead of buying directly from Xero?

If you buy directly from Xero, you won’t get the PSG funding since Xero is not a pre-approved vendor like Timcole. We are a partner of Xero, and we deliver value-added services like setup, personalised training, data migration, support, and accounting-related services.
