If you would like to create a website for your company, you will need to register a domain name.  Once you have registered a domain name you can claim back the cost of it via the button below. You will also need to search for a web-hosting company online such as Wix or Wordpress as examples.  Please note, you can only claim back for the cost of a domain name but not the cost of a web-hosting service.

How to claim back business and website registration costs

You can claim back your business registration or website domain name registration costs or both! Please ensure you have registered your company and/or your website domain name before completing the below form. Please include attached invoices and receipts as proof of purchase.


If you have any questions about making a claim, feel free to email the team at
