Minister Donohoe encourages businesses to avail of supports as further restrictions take effect

The Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe TD, has encouraged businesses to avail of the range of support schemes in place to reduce the impact of new public health restrictions on their business.

Revenue continue to play a significant role in the delivery of critical Government supports to affected businesses that help to protect lives and livelihoods.

He stated on Friday last: “Due to the exponential growth in the virus seen over recent days and weeks, the Government has taken the necessary step in introducing further public health restrictions to reduce the overall level of mobility across the country. This will impact many thousands of employers in our economy and I would encourage all those impacted to avail of the range of business supports which have been put in place throughout the pandemic to give businesses the best possible chance of getting through this difficult trading period.

The Government will continue to assess the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy and I will continue to work with Ministerial colleagues to ensure that appropriate supports are in place to mitigate these effects.”
