CCAB- I and IBF Business Plan Guide

The Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies - Ireland (CCAB-I) and the Irish Banking Federation (IBF) have joined together to launch a new initiative to improve business lending and kick-start economic recovery.

The Business Plan Guide, developed by Ireland’s four accountancy bodies represented by CCAB-I, and the Irish Banking Federation, will assist Irish SMEs in the development of their business plans as part of applications to banks for credit. The guide contains practical support for local businesses to improve the quality and success of loan applications and speed the lending decision process.

The aim of the guide is to encourage the survival and growth of Irish SMEs by increasing the chances of those businesses accessing capital, which has been one of the major challenges throughout the recent economic climate.
