These coming months will be an uncertain time and we hope that you and your organisation are managing to operate as effectively as possible.
The Local Enterprise Offices have put together a list of financial supports for SMES facing cash flow issues amid the ongoing Covid-19 Crisis. Please click here for a reminder of what they are. Needless to say reduce your outgoings asap – talk to your Landlord about a 13 week or more rent holiday; likewise request a 13 week holiday from loan/mortgage repayments; Try and negotiate new terms with your suppliers and make your staff aware of the government HR supports available.
The LEOS will soon be offering a COVID-19 Business Continuity Voucher
It is expected to be up to €2,500 with no charge for the services to specialists in areas such as Finance, HR etc. Further information will be circulated as soon as possible.
