Shortly after Christmas the SFA issued a press release with their end of your statement.

‘2017 has been a challenging but successful year for small businesses. Brexit, wage inflation and increasing business costs are the main obstacles for small businesses in Ireland. However, as the year draws to a close, nearly two thirds of small firms feel that the business environment is improving.’
