Pre-Budget submission 2021: Restarting the Irish Economy – Measures to Support Irish Businesses

07 July, 2020

The impact of COVID-19 on jobs has been severely felt by many Irish businesses. In order to restart, we need to reimagine the possible and focus on restoring demand in the Irish economy, which will support the maintenance and restoration of jobs. At the same time, businesses should be encouraged and supported to continue to adapt their business and also embrace the need for a greener economy.

In our annual pre-Budget submission, we look at the considerations to help to protect and support Irish Businesses as they restart and recover in the post-COVID-19 environment.

In the document, we explore four key headings which we believe should be addressed to support Irish Businesses in the forthcoming Budget:

  • Employment maintenance and restoration (including employee support)
  • Financing and supporting investment in Irish SMEs
  • Tax relieving and cash-flow measures to stimulate demand in the economy
  • Business succession and transition
