Digitizing Agents Catalog
Last week the catalog was published with the 3,000 digitizing agents that red.es has initially validated. However, it is expected that this number will increase in the coming weeks until reaching a total of approx. 7,000 digitizing agents, since the membership period to become a digitizing agent will be open for the entire duration of the Digital Kit Program. It should be noted that the function of digitizing agents is to collaborate and help SMEs in the aid application process. They will be the ones who present all the supporting documentation and, once the service has been provided and its justification approved, they will receive the digital voucher payment. At Globalcaja, we put at your disposal our Technical office, a new service with high added value with which we seek to help companies throughout the entire process of identification, application, preparation of the file and subsequent justification of regional, national and European aid. We encourage you to contact us through our website or through any of our offices to obtain more information about the aid of the DIGITAL KIT or about any of the different lines of public aid and complementary financing options available for your investment project. .
