Overview of Government Supports

Businesses may not be aware of all of the Government supports that are available to them, and that is why the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation has produced a new report titled Overview of Government Supports for Indigenous Business, which sets out the Government supports available to develop and build capacity in indigenous enterprises across Ireland, delivered through a network of bodies with a wide reach into urban and rural localities.

In addition to supports for start-ups and developing businesses, the report sets out supports that incentivise research, development and innovation, supports for regional businesses and supports that address informational, technical and skills gaps in SME businesses. Brexit is recognised as a significant issue for all firms, and to this end, the report highlights the networks, structures and supports that have been put in place for indigenous local businesses in identifying key risk areas and in facilitating the practical actions to be taken in response to the UK's exit from the EU.
