PSG for Laptop



In the early days of PIC (Productivity & Innovation Credit), laptops were one of the items that could be supported by government subsidies. However this support was ceased after PIC ended. To our delight again today, the subsidy is now back with PSG! However, it is only valid till 31 December 2020.


The Productivity Solutions Grant (PSG) supports companies in the adoption of pre-scoped IT solutions and equipment that helps enhance productivity.

Some of the different types of software that PSG support include Accounting, Human Resource Management (HR), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Cyber Security, Document Management & many more. For more information about which software that is supported under PSG.
