SFA E-Zine – The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member,   

We are delighted to announce the guest speaker at this year’s SFA Annual Lunch in the Mansion House on 10 November will be Brent Pope

The application deadline for the SFA National Small Business Awards 2018 has been extended to 5:30pm on Friday (27 October), don’t miss your last chance to apply. We bring you details of a recent government announcement that maternity leave will be extended for premature births and a summary of the Oireachtas Committee autumn hearings which focused on business costs.

Each week in the SFA e-zine, we profile a different government support available to small businesses. In this edition, we focus on Innovation Vouchers, which give small and medium size companies €5,000 to spend on projects with public research bodies such as institutes of technology.

If you missed last week's SFA webinar on workplace investigations you have the chance to play it back. Register to attend the next Business Bytes on 8 November which will examine how to structure your business tax efficiently for today and tomorrow. Book a place on one of our November training courses on management skills and employment law and at the SFA Members Christmas evening on 14 December. We also bring you a summary of 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: www.sfa.ie.

Kind regards, 

Sven Spollen-Behrens
