With Brexit clock ticking, it’s time to discover the supports available to your business

The Brexit clock is clicking ever closer to the departure, organised or otherwise,  of the UK from the European Union. Clarity is as far away as ever as the people who are supposed to be in charge at Westmister continue with their tortuous arguments which have achieved nothing much other than to muddy the waters still further.

Whatever  way things pan out between Westminster and Brussels there can be no doubt that there will be significant fallout experienced throughout the island of Ireland and, perhaps expecially, in the border region so, just like the Boy Scouts, everyone in business has to do their best to “Be Prepared”. 

Thomas McEvoy, Head of Enterprise in Louth sums it up nicely: “We understand that even the concept of “getting Brexit ready“ is a huge challenge for many SMEs” he said. “For the most part it can be hard to define what you’re getting ready for when the true impact of Brexit is still not clear.” 

Thomas has a clear message for SMEs in the north east: “As a small business owner, you are not on your own. The Local Enterprise Office, Enterprise Ireland and a multitude of state agencies are here to help and support you in these uncertain times.”

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation are inviting SME owners and managers to a free Information Session on Monday, 23rd September at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Dundalk.  

Thomas explains “Hosted by Minister Heather Humphreys, this event brings together all of the state agencies providing different supports advice and information to SMEs. This free morning briefing, from 08.00-10.30hrs, allows you to discover what we can do to help. It also provides the opportunity to talk one-to-one with the various agencies and ask them your own particular questions.” 

Thomas concluded “While the outcome of Brexit is still uncertain, we want SMEs in the north-east to realise that you are not facing it alone. We want to hear from you, to meet you and to support you. Join us on the 23rd September for this free event. Book your place by clicking here or talk to us about our range of Brexit supports on 1890 202 303.” 

The Local Enterprise Offices nationally play a major role in offering expertise, know-how and financial support to local businesses. The Local Enterprise Office Louth is part of Louth County Council and supported by Enterprise Ireland.
