Maximise Cash-flow

Max cashflow  max cashflow

Belfast South and Belfast City branches held a "Maximising Cashflow" event on Thursday 2 May which was very kindly hosted by Allister Mulligan of Desk Warehouse. The event was attended by more than 40 members who were keen to understand how to improve their business cashflow.

The main speaker for the event was James McGovern of Charis Consultancy and Finance who focussed on identifying the different types of funding available, funding bodies and more importantly how to develop a Business Plan that would help to secure the funding identified.

Feedback from the members was extremely positive with over 90% agreeing that the topic and presenter were either good or excellent. In fact, the presentation was so good that it is likely that we will host this event again in the Autumn in the North Down area.

Elaine McKeown, Chair of Belfast South said, "We are absolutely delighted at the turnout for this event. The combination of topic, venue and timing all converged to make this a very attractive event for members".

Our next event will focus on the other side of the balance sheet: tax savings and credit control, both also critical to business success. This event will be on Thursday 19 September – venue to be advised.

Belfast South held another successful event on Thursday 2 February. The theme for the event was "Changes you need to know" and focussed on the up and coming changes to PAYE and workplace pensions.

The speakers were: Kelley Magill, DNT Chartered Accountants, Stephen Blayney, Segner Ltd and Ruth Thompson, The Behaviour Effect.

The speakers were excellent and clearly communicated what will be required from businesses both now and in the next few years. Of particular interest is the FSB' s workplace pension scheme which demonstrated the organisation's focus on helping and supporting local businesses.
