Enterprise Ireland has selected Accountant Online to participate on a panel of approved financial advisors for Covid-19 Business Financial Planning Grant worth up to €5,000.
Eligible companies can receive a grant of up to €5,000 for financial support from an Enterprise Ireland (EI) approved financial consultant.
The financial advisor will help you:
1) Determine how to minimise costs and maximise sources of liquidity in your business
The approved financial advisor will look at your company’s current position and examine the negative Covid-19 impacts on your business.
2) Prepare a short-to-medium term financial plan so your business can secure external funding
The financial advisor will help you devise a strategic plan on how to mitigate risks and identify appropriate actions and the resources required. This should include 3 years of projections (monthly profit & loss accounts, balance sheet, and cash-flow).
3) Implement a framework to monitor and manage your business’ finances
The financial advisor will ensure that business owners are aware of how to additional finance, for example, from DEASP, Revenue, Banks and other sources.
How to apply?
1) Contact Enterprise Ireland
If you’re already an Enterprise Ireland client, you can contact your assigned Enterprise Ireland Advisor to discuss your application.
2) Choose a financial consultant
The relevant Enterprise Ireland Development Advisor will provide the names of three approved consultants based on sectoral experience and location for each engagement.
You can then choose which consultant to engage with.
3) Engage with the consultant
Companies are expected to engage with the consultant, for example, Accountant Online, directly. This will establish their availability and any other conflicts that may arise.
4) Complete the application form
Once the relationship has been established, the company needs to complete the online application for the grant. Applications that do not include the name of an approved consultant will not be approved.
If approved, the company will receive a Letter of Offer and be asked for their bank details.
