Covid-19 Government support for SMEs

There is an abundance of information, statistics and government announcements on Covid-19 that we have to deal with currently on an almost daily basis.

I have tried here to collate all the current information from the government regarding help, assistance, grants and schemes currently available (or in the pipe-line) for businesses to help them financially during the next few months.

The schemes explained are as follows and are explained in full in the link below:

·         Local Enterprise Offices – Covid-19 Business Continuity Voucher

·         Warehousing of Vat and Payroll tax liabilities for 12 months (New government needed to introduce legislation)

·         Rates waivers / Restart Grants up to €10,000    (New government needed to introduce legislation)

·         Microfinance Ireland Covid-19 Low Cost Business Loans

·         Government Credit Guarantee Scheme for Covid-19   (New government needed to introduce legislation)

·         Local Enterprise Offices – COVID-19 Trading On-Line (TOV) Grants

·         SBCI – Covid-19 Working Capital Loan Scheme

·         Wage Subsidy Scheme

·         Enterprise Ireland – Covid-19 Lean Business Continuity Voucher

·         Enterprise Ireland – COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme

·         Pandemic Stabilisation and Recovery Fund

I hope that this information might be of some help, and of course I am always available to you to assist you with advice on usefulness of, eligibility and applications for any of the above.

In the meantime stay safe and stay in touch.
