Finance in Focus

Overview of the Finance in Focus grant


The Finance in Focus grant offers Enterprise Ireland (EI) and Údarás na Gaeltachta clients funding of up to €7,200 to cover third party consultant’s fees. These consultants will work with the clients to develop a detailed financial and business plan that identifies funding needs and potential sources of funding.

It is envisaged that up to 8 days will be required to develop the plan with 4 half days monitoring by the consultant post plan completion. The 4 half days will help build capability within the company by incorporating the plan into the business e.g. by reviewing actuals versus forecasts for the previous period.

  • An SME or Large company that meets the requirements of the Industrial Development Act 1986 as amended
