Welcome to this week's SFA e-zine.
With Christmas holidays fast approaching, in this week's ezine we have put together a list of those trickier FAQs around annual leave and public holiday entitlements.
We bring you details of the Local Government (Rates) Bill 2018 which is proposed to modernise and consolidate commercial rates legislation in Ireland. Find out more about the Future Jobs Summit which took place last week in preparation for the rapid changes ahead in the world of work.
The CSO recently published its Business Statistics Overview, which outlines the key statistics for the Irish business economy in 2016. We link to a survey on Brexit from Enterprise Ireland and Deloitte which finds 68% of Irish CEOs have started to mitigate against potential impact of Brexit. Have your say on the establishment of a new independent Irish Banking Culture Board through a public consultation.
Join us for some Christmas cheer at the SFA Members Christmas Evening taking place on 13 December. Also book your place at our next Business Bytes seminar on 9 January which focuses on workplace health and well-being.
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.
