What is financial wellbeing?

Financial Wellbeing for business is about making sure you can meet day-to-day expenses, plan for the future, and cope with the unexpected, enabling you to do the most with what you have.

For all business owners, good financial planning is essential in order to generate income, plan for your business future, and identify and act on any opportunities or potential business disruption. Increasing your knowledge and skills as a business owner can help you to make more informed and smart business decisions.

In Northern Ireland we support Business Financial Wellbeing through strategic partnerships with leading organisations. Working with Catalyst, we support the promotion of entrepreneurship, innovation, diversity & inclusion. Through the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, we provide opportunities for peer learning, support, practical business development and access to supply chains. We also promote, celebrate, and recognise excellence in business management and growth through our partnership with Belfast Chamber of Commerce and the Belfast Chamber Business Awards.
