We also take a look at the crucial points any business needs to be aware of when it comes to redundancy.

The countdown is on for the SFA Annual Lunch on 15 November in The Mansion House. Book your seat today so you don't miss out on our keynote speaker David Meade, and the opportunity to meet with other small businesses in Ireland. Finally, entries for the SFA National Small Business Awards wrapped up last week and the finalists will be announced at the end of November - keep an eye out for your local small business!
