BUSINESS PLANS FOR GRANT APPLICATIONS

There is a multitude of government funded financial supports available to Irish businesses. ​These grants are administered by bodies such as the Local Enterprise Office and Enterprise Ireland. Often entrepreneurs or their businesses must meet specific criteria in order to avail of the schemes on offer.

Number one, I’m Polish, so I didn’t have the confidence to prepare my own English plan. Number two, I’m not an accountant, so I couldn’t prepare cash flow forecasts. I know my own business though, and I’m so happy I found this business to help me with the technical side of raising finance.
