Business Funding Advisory Services
The international financial crisis together with Ireland’s own domestic economic difficulties has led to a significant reduction in the availability of funding for Irish SMEs and Corporates. This coupled with a difficult trading environment, increasing margins and tightening credit terms has led to funding becoming the greatest challenge for Irish businesses.
