Small Business Manifesto
There are over 267,000 small businesses (less than 50 employees) in Ireland. They represent 98% of businesses in the country and employ 755,854 people – half of the private sector workforce. Therefore, the next government must have a major focus on entrepreneurship and small business. They should develop a visible and coherent national SME and Entrepreneurship policy, that focuses on the cost of doing business, taxation, future of work and climate change.
As we get closer to polling day, we are urging every party and candidate contesting to listen to, and make every effort to understand, the challenges faced by small firms in the communities they hope to represent.
To ensure the voice of small business is heard on February 8th visit our General Election 2020 page. Watch our General Election Webinar and share our Small Business Manifesto.
