Kilkenny businesses urged to avail of Brexit funding
Kilkenny businesses are being urged to avail of all the supports and grants available as the effects of Brexit begin to kick in.
The Government this week restated its commitment to help businesses meet challenges posed by Britain’s decision to quit the EU.
As part of the transition, the Government is making grants of up to €9,000 available to companies for each employee engaged in ‘customs’ work.
Minister for Trade Promotion Robert Troy said: “While Ireland did not vote for Brexit, we are now dealing with the fallout.
“We know supply-chains will take time to adjust to the new arrangements and documentary requirements, and so we are actively engaging with logistic companies, retailers and wider stakeholders to deal with issues arising to ensure continued flow of goods.
“I am urging companies to reach out and engage with the various customs training and grants, tariff advisory services, loans schemes, and other advisory supports available.
“I strongly encourage businesses to learn about the options for assistance available to them on my Department’s website and to avail of them,” Minister Troy added.
