SFA Fortnightly Update

Dear Member, 


Welcome to this edition of the SFA e-zine.


As we prepare for what could prove to be a very difficult winter, we bring you the most significant trends from our Small Business Sentiment Survey.  The CRSS published their guidelines on how to apply for the CRSS scheme yesterday, see the full document here.


In this edition we continue to highlight the importance of Brexit readiness with an article on preparing employees for changes brought about by the UK leaving the EU and how to apply Import VAT from 1st January 2021 on goods into Ireland from the UK. 


New report highlights the importance of management development for small business growth in Ireland. 


Finally, there is still time to apply for MentorsWork our free programme aimed at guiding small businesses through the current challenges. Be sure to book on to one of our upcoming webinars, including the SFA Annual General Meeting taking place on 25 November. We also go over our most recent press coverage


As always, we’d love to hear from you about any queries you may have, issues you wish to have raised with Government or other stakeholders and your ideas on how we can improve the business environment for us all. Please contact me on tel: 01 605 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit our website.
