Invest NI assistance to local businesses
This dataset contains information on Invest NI financial assistance to support locally-owned companies, offered between April 2011 and September 2014. The data was obtained from a Freedom of Information request made to Invest NI in 2015.
Information on an additional £28million of offers to 1,789 locally-owned companies was withheld by Invest NI. Please note that this dataset is not a full representation of all Invest NI support as it excludes sole traders (this data could not be released due to data protection), businesses that have availed of non-financial support, and externally-owned businesses.
Disclaimer: There are no allegations of wrongdoing against Invest NI or against any business that received support or any other party.
The Detail Data article also makes use of population totals for the former LGD areas, facts and figures from the Inter-departmental Business Register (IDBR), NI Multiple Deprivation Measures, NISRA Urban Rural Classifications and Claimant Count statistics.
The summary tables include breakdowns of financial assistance and jobs figures by Parliamentary Constituency, as well as the number of businesses in each Local Government District.
