SFA E-Zine – The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member,   

In this week's ezine we update you on a Sectoral Employment Order which will lead to pay increases for workers in the construction sector.


We bring you further details on the SME share option scheme, Key Employee Engagement Programme (KEEP) which was announced in Budget 2018. Find out how you can feature in the next edition of SFA's Better Business magazine which has been nominated in the 2017 Irish Magazine Awards.


Each week in the SFA e-zine, we profile a different government support available to small businesses. In this edition, we focus on the JobsPlus incentive, which provides a contribution towards wages if hiring the long-term unemployed. Find out more about the Future of Towns Summit that took place in Sligo on 18 October.

Register to attend the next Business Bytes on 8 November which will examine how to structure your business tax efficiently for today and tomorrow and stop by the SFA stand at the Taking Care of Business event on the same day. Don't miss your last chance to book a seat at the SFA Annual Lunch taking place in the Mansion House on 10 November with guest speaker, Brent Pope. Plan ahead for the Christmas period with a webinar on 16 November covering holiday entitlements, adverse weather and company parties. Book a place on one of our November training courses on management skills and employment law, at the SFA AGM on 29 November and at the SFA Members Christmas evening on 14 December. 


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,
